Collins spoke to about 120 medical students on the historical significance of Ernest William Goodpasture, M.D., a young researcher who became the premier virologist in the world while working at Vanderbilt from 1924-1955. Collins credits Goodpasture's accomplishments as a key factor in the success of the Medical School.
