The Inga Taylor, M.D. Memorial Lecture, honors one of The Medical University of South Carolina’s own. Earning her MD from MUSC in 1971, Dr. Taylor was appointed to the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in 1975. Her major area of interest during this time was the relationship between depression and the immune system and in 1979 was awarded a large federal research grant to do work in this area. She was a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and had risen to the academic rank of Associate Professor at the time of her death from cancer in 1980. Thanks to an endowment fund the MUSC Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department is able to host an annual lecture on a topic that in some way reflects Dr. Taylor’s professional interests.
