Joseph F. Morgan, (1918 – 1976), a long-time member of the SIVB, was a Canadian scientist who contributed significantly to the art and science of in vitro biology. He pioneered research in the fields including defined media, cryobiology, amino acid and carbohydrate metabolism, the growth of viruses in vitro and the initial understanding of the post-World War II miracle – antibiotics. Although he missed being a founding member of the Tissue Culture Association by one year, his contributions to the SIVB (TCA), both personal and scientific, were lifelong.
The Joseph F. Morgan Fund Contribution supports the Joseph F. Morgan Award which provides travel funds for Canadian students to attend the Annual Meeting of the SIVB.
