Institute Of Medicine Elects New Members

Three scientists who work in chemically related areas are among the 60 newly elected active members of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), one of the four sister institutions that make up the National Academies, Washington, D.C. A fourth was elected to senior membership. IOM now has 632 active members and 738 senior members. With the election of five foreign associates last week, that number now totals 61.

Active members are chosen for their major contributions to health and medicine or to related areas such as social and behavioral sciences, law, administration, and economics. IOM's charter requires that at least one-fourth of the members be drawn from other than health professions.

Following are the newly elected chemistry-related IOM members:

Mark S. Boguski, senior vice president, research and development, Rosetta Inpharmatics Inc., Kirkland, Wash.

Thomas M. Jessell, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator and professor, department of biochemistry and molecular biophysics, College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University.

Gregory A. Petsko, Gyula & Katica Tauber Professor of Biochemistry & Chemistry, and director, Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, Brandeis University, Waltham, Mass.

Among the newly elected senior members is Ralph F. Hirschmann, Makineni Professor of Bioorganic Chemistry, department of chemistry, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
