Date:10/13/2008

SEATTLE, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Larry Corey, M.D., senior vice president and co-director of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, today was named as one of 65 new members of the prestigious Institutes of Medicine (IOM).

Election to the IOM is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. Members are elected through a highly selective process that recognizes people who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health.

"I am honored by the recognition," Corey said. With a tip of the hat to those who work in his labs, Corey added, "I thank all of the smart fellows, post docs, technicians and collaborators who have made me look so good over the years. I hope I continue to stay out of their way and allow them to pursue their ideas, with just the right touch of guidance from me."

With their election to the IOM, members make a commitment to volunteer a significant amount of time to IOM committees, which engage in a broad range of studies on health policy issues.

Corey is principal investigator of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network, which is based at the Hutchinson Center. He is also head of the University of Washington's Virology Division and is a professor of medicine and laboratory medicine at the UW School of Medicine.

Research in Corey's labs includes studies dealing with the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of HIV and herpes virus infections. These investigations include the development of experimental vaccines for both genital herpes and HIV. The labs have also pioneered novel tests for diagnosing and monitoring therapies for viral infections.
