Larry L. Ewing Memorial Lecture
Dr. Larry L. Ewing joined the School of Public Health in 1972. During his time here, his lab developed a method for the isolation of highly purified, steroidogenically active Leydig cells that is now used worldwide. He was the founder and later president of the Society for the Study of Reproduction, had over 130 major publications and held a patent on the sustained release of steroids for male contraception. Dr. Ewing had a significant impact on Reproductive Biology at Johns Hopkins University and we continue to build on his science today.
