Dr. Peter Agre, the director of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute, will speak at the Presidential Distinguished Lecture, which will be held Thursday, March 26 at 12 p.m. in the Holly Auditorium at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. 

He shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of aquaporins, a family of water channel proteins found throughout nature. Referred to as “the plumbing system for cells,” aquaporins are involved in numerous physiological processes in humans and are implicated in multiple clinical disorders including malaria. 

Dr. Agre is also deeply involved in multiple global issues. He is the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health.
