Congratulations to our new Distinguished Professors, Drs Carol Carter and Vincent Yang! Dr. Carter from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology is recognized for her seminal work on how pathogens escape from infected cells by exploiting cellular machinery, and thus led to a new approach to antiviral HIV drug development. Dr. Yang is the Chair of the Department of Medicine, and his work focuses on identifying the causes and treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. He studies Krüppel-like factors (KLFs), a group of proteins with important physiologic functions, including the ability to convert somatic cells to induced pleuripotenti stem cells with remarkable therapeutic potential.
