UTHealth faculty members elected to prestigious scientific association
Date:12/13/2013

teful to be recognized for our accomplishments in clinical trials. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with so many wonderful people at the Coordinating Center and across the country to help improve the public's health," Davis said.

Morano's research focuses on how proteins achieve their properly folded structure that allows them to perform their functions and maintain cells in a healthy state.

Much like the intricate and precise way paper is folded in origami, proteins have to be accurately folded inside cells. Many neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson's disease and Lou Gehrig's disease are caused when proteins are not folded correctly and Morano's work contributes to understanding how this may be corrected.

"It's a great honor to be recognized for the work my students and I have been doing here at UTHealth Medical School. Most importantly, it's recognition from fellow scientists in our field, which is pretty cool," Morano said.

Morano, a microbiologist, is the director of the New Investigator Development Program at UTHealth Medical School and faculty president at The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston. He received his doctorate degree at the University of California, Davis, and completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan.

Other UTHealth faculty members elected as AAAS fellows include: L. Maximilian Buja, M.D.; John H. "Jack" Byrne, Ph.D.; John DeMoss, Ph.D.; Carmen Dessauer, Ph.D.; Bruce C. Kone, M.D.; Frank G. Moody, M.D.; Kathleen Gibson, Ph.D.; Irma Gigli, M.D.; Sam Kaplan, Ph.D.; James Willerson, M.D.; and Jerry Wolinsky, M.D.
