Lambrecht Student Awards

Awarded for Scholarship and Commitment

Mark R. Lambrecht was born March 18, 1966 in Rochester, NY. He moved with his family to Highland Park in 1971 and graduated from Highland Park High School in 1984. He received the B. Sc. from the University of Rochester in 1988. Mark was an exceptional student. His favorite sport was tennis, and his great avocation was black and white photography. Mark decided to explore a career in medicine and research, and in 1988 joined the laboratories of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, where he was involved in studies on neuro-biology, biochemistry and biophysics of behaviour. Owing to Mark's considerable talents and wonderful personality, he took at on a broader role in implementing the use of electronic mail in the department in what was then a relative new and unfamiliar technology. On March 31st, 1989, we lost Mark in a tragic accident. To honor Mark's memory, the Department of Physiology and Biophysics instituted the Mark R. Lambrecht Award for Scholarship and Commitment as an annual award for pre-doctoral candidates.
