He studies the molecular mechanisms that underlie HIV infection. Recently, Dr. Greene's lab identified human protein fragments in semen that enhance the ability of HIV to infect new cellsa discovery that one day could help stem the global spread of this deadly pathogen.

Earlier this month, Dr. Greene was also honored with the 2012 Distinguished Research Career Award from the Ohio State University Center for Retrovirus Research. This award pays tribute to the career of a scientist working in the field of retrovirology. Dr. Greene was recognized for his substantial body of work on the molecular biology, immunology and pathogenesis of HIV-1 and HTLV-1.

"We are delighted that Dr. Greene is being acknowledged for his work to overcome one of the world's most devastating diseases," said R. Sanders Williams, MD, president of Gladstone. "These honors are highly deserved and speak both to his high accomplishments and his dedication to patients."
