New Lectureship Honors Frank S. Moran

Frank S. Moran

An important endowed lecture series has been established at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center in honor of the late Frank S. Moran. Detroit businessman Jay Alix has chosen to honor Frank for his personal and business contributions and to carry forward his spirit through this generous gift.

Frank Moran co-founded Plante & Moran in 1950, became managing partner in 1955, and served as chairman from 1981 until his death in 1997. During his many years of leadership, Frank's unique personal philosophy and belief in teamwork helped build America's 10th largest and one of the most successful accounting and financial services firms.

"Frank's spirit and philosophy live on," says Jay Alix, co-chair of the University Cancer Foundation Development Committee. "He was an exemplary husband, father, friend, mentor and leader influencing thousands on a personal level."

The Frank S. Moran Endowed Lecture fund will support an annual lectureship in oncology research at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, which will recognize a nationally renowned physician who has made significant contributions to the field. This year's recipient is Dr. Rainer Storb, professor of Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle and head of the Transplantation Biology Program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. For more than three decades, Storb has been at the forefront of bone marrow transplantation care and research, and has served as mentor to an entire generation of bone marrow transplant physician scientists.
