Description: Anita B. Roberts Lecture Series

Dr. Peng Loh will give the fifteenth lecture in the Anita B. Roberts lecture series, which highlights outstanding research achievements of women scientists in the Intramural Research Program.

The Anita B. Roberts Lecture Series, "Distinguished Women Scientists at NIH, highlights outstanding research achievements of women scientists at the NIH. The seminar is dedicated to Dr. Anita Roberts and honors her role as an exceptional mentor and scientist.

Anita joined the NIH in 1976 and spent 30 years at NCI, rising to Chief of the Laboratory of Cell Regulation and Carcinogenesis. She died of gastric cancer in May 2006, leaving a legacy that touched both the professional and personal lives of all who knew her. Her work focused primarily on TGF-beta and its role in the growth of epithelial and lymphoid cells. In 2003, Thomas Scientific's Science Watch listed her among the 50 most-cited scientists during 1982 to 2002, a feature called "Twenty Years of Citation Superstars."

Anita was a superstar to many for her mentoring talent and her ability to balance family and work life. Her successful lab was well known for meeting family needs and for providing an environment both intellectually and emotionally enriching. The lecture series in her name serves to highlight the fact that the NIH recognizes the value and necessity of a supportive workplace.
