The Rao Makineni Lectureship was established in 2003 by an endowment by PolyPeptide Laboratories and Murray and Zelda Goodman. The Lectureship honors Rao Makineni, a long-time supporter of peptide science, peptide scientists, and the American Peptide Society. The Makineni Lectureship recognizes an individual who has made a recent contribution of unusual merit to research in the field of peptide science. The award is intended to recognize original and singular discoveries rather than cumulative or lifetime contributions. The award is presented at the biennial American Peptide Symposia.
