He has authored more than 400 publications, was named Time magazine's 1996 Man of the Year for his pioneering work in AIDS research and is the recipient of 12 honorary doctorates for his scientific contributions.

IsoPlexis Chief Executive Officer Sean Mackay said, "Dr. David Ho is a critical addition to our Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. David Ho is the founding Scientific Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center.
