Bassford was a respected scientist in the field of E. coli protein secretion, a vital faculty member and a committed mentor to graduate students. Following his death in 1991, the Department of Microbiology and Immunology created the Philip J. Bassford Memorial Fund, which funds the student-driven Bassford Memorial Lecture.
