The Institute of Medicine of the National Academies on Monday announced that it has elected Warner C. Greene to membership. Greene is the director and senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology as well as a professor of medicine, microbiology, and immunology at the University of California, San Francisco, and codirector of the federally funded UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research.
"We are very proud of this well deserved honor for Dr. Greene," said fellow IOM member Robert W. Mahley, president of the J. David Gladstone Institutes. "His research has contributed enormously to our understanding of HIV/AIDS and a great many other important immunology issues of our time."
The Institute of Medicine is a nonprofit organization created to provide science-based advice on matters of biomedical science, medicine, and health. An honorific membership organization chartered in 1970 as a component of the National Academy of Sciences, it works outside the framework of government to ensure scientifically informed analysis and independent guidance.
