New Haven, Conn. -- The ten 2004 Senior Scholars in Global Infectious Disease recently announced by the Ellison Medical Foundation

, Lucille P. Markey Professor of Microbiology and Chair of the Section of Microbial Pathogenesis
at Yale School of Medicine; John Carlson
, Eugene Higgins Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology
; and Ruslan Medzhitov
, Professor of Immunobiology
at Yale School of Medicine. Each scholar will receive nearly $1 million in research support over four years.
"The Ellison Senior Scholar Awards are greatly coveted, both for their prestige and for their generous terms of support," said University Provost Andrew Hamilton. "I am absolutely delighted by the success of our faculty in this year's selection process."
"The Ellison Medical Foundation has encouraged leading investigators to press forward with some of the most innovative and exciting work on infectious disease," said Yale School of Medicine Dean Robert Alpern. "It will be a tremendous boost to Yale's research effort on infectious disease to have these distinguished scientists working as Ellison Senior Scholars." Richard Flavell, Sterling Professor and Chair of the Section of Immunobiology, was selected as an Ellison Senior Scholar in Global Infectious Disease last year.
