UT professor elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies
Date:10/17/2011

George Georgiou, a professor at The University of Texas at Austin whose technology developments in the engineering, medical, biochemical and cellular fields could help treat tens of thousands of patients with diseases such as cancer and osteoporosis, has been elected as a member of the Institute of Medicine (IOM).

Established in 1970, IOM is the health arm of the National Academies. Induction into the institute is considered one of the highest honors in health and medicine, reserved for outstanding professional accomplishment and commitment to service.

Georgiou, a professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering and the College of Natural Sciences, is only the third faculty member from the university and the second from the Cockrell School's Biomedical Engineering Department and Chemical Engineering Department to be inducted into IOM.

"I'm delighted that Dr. George Georgiou's significant research contributions are being recognized by the Institute of Medicine," said Nicholas Peppas, a member of IOM, chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, where Georgiou holds the Cockrell Family Regent's Chair in Engineering #9. "Because of his pioneering work on therapeutics and biomedicine, his seminal work on manipulation of protein structure has led to a number of new drug and diagnostic systems that are improving the health and lives of many. He is a true leader in medicine."

Georgiou joined the university in 1986 and is a world authority in the discovery, development and manufacturing of protein therapeutics. A member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), Georgiou has developed several protein-based therapies for diseases, including co-developing the leading approach under consideration for treatment of inhaled anthrax. His research also includes the engineering of antibodies for protection against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the discovery of pr
