WNPRC Robert W. Goy Lecture Series

The WNPRC hosts the annual Robert W. Goy Lecture each year in the spring. Dr. Robert W. Goy, Ph.D., 1924-1999, was a professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Director of the Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center from 1971-1989. Dr. Goy exemplified the best the University of Wisconsin-Madison has to offer – in research, teaching, mentoring and creative inspiration. Contact Edi Chan for more information.
