Print PDF

Lawrence Corey, MD, head of the University of Washington’s Virology Division and professor of medicine and laboratory medicine at the UW School of Medicine, was recently named as a new member of the prestigious Institute of Medicine (IOM), one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine.

The respected researcher is the principal investigator of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network, based at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and serves as the co-director of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute there. Research in Corey’s labs includes studies dealing with the prevention and treatment of both herpes virus infections and HIV and the labs have pioneered novel tests for diagnosing and monitoring therapies for viral infections. Most recently, work in Corey’s lab has included the development of experimental vaccines for both genital herpes and HIV.

New members to the IOM are chosen in a highly selective process that recognizes people who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health. As a member, Corey will contribute to a wide range of studies on issues of health policy.
