Institute Of Medicine Elects New Members


Four scientists who work in chemically related areas are among the 65 newly elected members of the Institute of Medicine, one of the four sister institutions that make up the National Academies, Washington, D.C. IOM no longer divides its membership into active and senior members, so it now has 1,358 members. In addition, five people were elected foreign associates, bringing that total to 66.

Following are the newly elected chemistry-related IOM members:

Harvey J. Alter, chief, infectious disease section, and associate director of research, department of transfusion medicine, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md.

David Eisenberg, professor of biological chemistry and molecular biology, University of California, Los Angeles, and director, UCLA-U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory of Structural Biology & Molecular Medicine.

William E. Evans, executive vice president and deputy director, and chair, department of pharmaceutical sciences, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis.

Ira Herskowitz, professor of biochemistry and biophysics, and codirector, program in human genetics, University of California, San Francisco.

Also elected to membership is a man who has had a big impact on chemical research, though he's not a chemist: Gerald M. Rubin, vice president for biomedical research, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and professor of genetics and development, department of molecular and cell biology, University of California, Berkeley.
