Robert Guthrie Memorial Dinner

The Idea

To identify PKU babies affected by Phenylketonuria immediately after birth, Robert Guthrie invented the possibility for newborn screening, also known as the “Guthrie test”. Uncounted patients owe him the chance of early treatment and a normal life without the devastating symptoms of untreated PKU.

On June 28th , 2016 is the 100st anniversary of Robert Guthrie’s birth. At this occasion, we want to invite people from all over the world to commemorate him and his lifetime achievements with a Robert Guthrie Memorial Dinner.
