Norman WeinerThe Norman Weiner Lecture was established in memory of Dr. Norman Weiner, past ASPET President and chair of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Colorado. It is in honor of his many contributions to both ASPET and to pharmacology research and education.

Dr. Weiner, President of ASPET from 1986–1987, served ASPET in many capacities, including chair of the Board of Publications Trustees, councilor, and secretary/treasurer. Despite suffering a debilitating stroke in 1987 while chairing a meeting for ASPET, he returned to his professorship at the University of Colorado and with the help of his devoted wife, Diana, faithfully attended every ASPET meeting until his death in 2009.

The Norman Weiner Lecture is selected by the ASPET Program Committee and is presented in odd-numbered years.
