Abstract : On July 26, 1988, the commanding officer established the Ashton Graybiel Lecture Series to honor the former scientific director of the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory. Like Dr. Graybiel, this lecture series is intended to stimulate and challenge conventional research interests in naval aviation and aerospace medicine. As a pioneer in the field of aviation medicine for over 40 years, Dr. Graybiel made many significant scientific contributions, which cannot be overstated. His world-renowned work advanced current aeromedical knowledge and established the reputation of this laboratory. Today, his expertise, foresight, and creativity remain as benchmarks in our aviation medicine research. We are committed to the same level of excellence in meeting the needs of the fleet that Dr. Graybiel accomplished during four decades of research. We are delighted that you are able to join us for this unique opportunity to meet and share information with some of the most noted scientists in the fields of naval aviation, aerospace medicine, and environmental physiology.
