The William S. Sly Centennial Chair will celebrate 100 years of scientific excellence.

Named after its founder, a 1943 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine and Saint Louis University benefactor, the Edward A. Doisy Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology within the Saint Louis University School of Medicine continues a tradition of excellence in research that pushes the frontiers of basic and translational science. Over the past decade, the Department has gained prominence by cultivating talented faculty, garnering numerous accolades, expanding extramural funding by 75%, and publishing impactful work in the field.

As an important milestone approaches in 2024, the Department prepares to celebrate 100 years of scientific success that remains unsurpassed among Jesuit academic institutions. Endowing the William S. Sly Centennial Chair will provide much needed resources to recruit and retain scientific talent, thereby continuing and expanding the upward trajectory of scientific achievement in the Department and at Saint Louis University.
