VIDEO: Watch the Ko Lecture 'A Radical Approach to Antibiotic Resistance'

If you missed the recent Winston Ko Professorship in Science Leadership Lecture, you still have an opportunity to check out the presentation.  

On May 15, Squire J. Booker, an esteemed biochemist from Pennsylvania State University, presented a lecture titled “A Radical Approach to Antibiotic Resistance.” You can view the lecture on the college's YouTube channel.


The Ko Professorship in Science Leadership was endowed by the late professor emeritus Winston Ko and his wife Katy Ko. The endowment honors Ko’s 41 years of service to UC Davis and his leadership in research and education. Ko served as chair of the Department of Physics from 1998 to 2003 and dean of the Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) from 2003 to 2013. MPS was one of three separate divisions that eventually united to form the College of Letters and Science. Ko died unexpectedly in 2019 while hiking with family members in the Big Sur area.
