The American Association of Immunologists (AAI) will honor Dartmouth Medical School’s chair of microbiology and immunology for his work on public policy issues and his advocacy of research funding on behalf of fellow immunologists and other scientists.
William R. Green, PhD, a former dean of DMS and the current director of Dartmouth’s Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) in immunology will receive the Distinguished Service Award during AAI’s 99th annual meeting in Boston in May of 2012. From 2005 to 2009 he served on AAI’s Committee on Public Affairs, the last two as chair, during which he led efforts to raise public awareness of the importance of biomedical research and to keep federal grants flowing to researchers in immunology and related fields.
Green also directs the Dartmouth Community Medical School and holds the Elmer R. Pfefferkorn professorship at DMS. He is the current president of the Association of Medical School Microbiology and Immunology Chairs (ASMIC).
