Festschrift issue for Hilary Koprowski, MD
Date:6/20/2014

New Rochelle, NY, June 20, 2014The June issue of Monoclonal Antibodies in Immunodiagnosis and Immunotherapy is a special tribute issue for Hilary Koprowski, MD (1916-2013). The Festschrift papers are available online on the Monoclonal Antibodies in Immunodiagnosis and Immunotherapy website.

An exclusive print copy of the Festschrift will be presented to all speakers at The Wistar Institute Symposium to honor Dr. Koprowski in Philadelphia on June 27, 2014, with support from CASIS.

"The contributors to this issue are internationally known scientists who were personally involved in Hilary Koprowski's scientific research, including Margo Brinton, Thomas Kieber-Emmons, Barbara Knowles, Michael Oldstone, and Stanley Plotkin," says journal Editor-in-Chief Zenon Steplewski, MD, PhD, Biotechnology Foundation Inc., Philadelphia, PA. "His lifelong achievements in biomedical research include the advancement of vaccines (he was the first to develop the basis for an oral polio vaccine) and new approaches to cancer biology studies and modern virology (development of the modern tissue cultured-based rabies vaccine). Although it was not possible to cover all areas of his work, this Festschrift gives readers an idea of the many and varied influences that Dr. Koprowski shared in the fields of bioscience."

"CASIS is extremely proud to be a sponsor of the Festschrift issue in honor of Dr. Koprowski," says CASIS Chief Operating Officer Duane Ratliff. "Onboard the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory, CASIS is enabling visionary researchers to explore the advantages of a microgravity environment to enhance life science research not otherwise possible on Earth."
