The Founder’s Day lectures honor the founders of the U.C.S.D. Neurosciences Department, Drs. Robert B. Livingston M.D., Theodore H. Bullock Ph.D. and Robert Galambos M.D., Ph.D. In 1965 Dr. Livingston became the founding Chair of what was then the world’s first Neurosciences Department. He organized the Department according to his then-radical vision of bringing together all the sub-disciplines of neuroscience from the molecular to the cognitive and clinical with the aim of fostering multi-level collaborations. The first two professors that Livingston hired were Ted Bullock, a distinguished neuroethologist and comparative physiologist, and Bob Galambos, a pioneer in auditory neurophysiology. Together, these far-sighted scientists laid the foundations and guiding principles on which the Neurosciences Department and Neurosciences Graduate Program have grown and flourished.
