Jay Levy honored with 2004 Abbott Laboratories Award in Clinical and Diagnostic Immunology

e numbers of PDCs, which are part of the immune system and key producers of type 1 interferons, have been found in long-term survivors of HIV infection. Levy has recently shown that the interaction of CD8+ cells with PDCs or interferon restores antiviral responses.

After graduating with high honors from Wesleyan University, Levy received Fulbright and French Government fellowships to conduct research at the Universit de Paris in France. He earned his medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, New York, New York, and he completed his internship and residency at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. The recipient of many honors and awards, he holds an honorary D.Sc. degree from Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut. He is a Fellow of both the American Academy of Microbiology and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The Abbott Laboratories Award in Clinical and Diagnostic Immunology will be presented at the 104th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), May 2327, 2004, in New Orleans, Louisiana. ASM is the largest single life science society, composed of over 42,000 scientists, teachers, physicians, and health professionals. Its mission is to promote research and training in the microbiological sciences and to assist communication between scientists, policymakers, and the public to improve health, economic well-being, and the environment.
