A tribute to
Lloyd H. (“Holly”) Smith Jr., MD
1924 – 2018

On August 25, 2014, the Gladstone Institutes hosted a reception for Dr. Smith to celebrate his career and to recognize the establishment of ASCI’s Donald Seldin~Holly Smith Award for Pioneering Research.

At the reception, Dr. Mukesh Jain, the 2014-2015 ASCI President, discussed the creation of the Seldin~Smith Award, followed by remarks from Drs. Bruce Scharschmidt and William Rutter. Dr. Smith then reflected on his career and the accomplishments of UCSF faculty members.
