Wistar Institute Professor Named First Koprowski Professor

Philadelphia - The Wistar Institute Board of Managers recently approved the appointment of Professor Giorgio Trinchieri, M.D., as Wistar's first Hilary Koprowski Endowed Professor.

The Hilary Koprowski Endowed Professorship, which is the Institute's first, was established jointly in 1998 through The Wistar Institute Science Trust Fund, whose members include Christopher Koprowski, Kathleen Scott and William Levy, and The Wistar Institute, which provided matching funds.

Designed to honor outstanding scientists at The Wistar Institute, the endowed professorship is named for Dr. Hilary Koprowski, an eminent virologist and immunologist who was Wistar's Director from 1957 until 1991.

"I recruited Dr. Trinchieri in 1975 and had the pleasure of witnessing his achievements in the field of immunology," said Dr. Koprowski. "Today, it is my pleasure that my name is associated with this outstanding scientist who has a very bright future ahead of him."

Dr. Trinchieri has served as head of Wistar's Immunology Program for the past seven years. In 1996, he was awarded the William B. Coley Award for Distinguished Research in Basic and Clinical Immunology, one of the highest honors in the field of immunology, for his discovery of Interleukin-12 (IL-12).

"Being awarded the Hilary Koprowski Chair at The Wistar Institute has very special meaning for me," said Dr. Trinchieri. "Hilary Koprowski has contributed so much to my scientific formation, giving me continuous scientific and intellectual support and allowing me to develop my scientific program in an environment of scientific excellence and collegiality. My wish is that this chair will be the first of a series of chairs that will recognize the scientific excellence of many outstanding scientists at Wistar."

Dr. Trinchieri came to Wistar 23 years ago. Prior to his arrival, he was a member of the faculty at the Basel Institute of Immunology in Switzerland, and an assistant professor in the Department of M
