Two members of the WCM faculty have been elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Carl Nathan, MD, and David Hajjar, PhD, are among the 213 scholars, scientists, and world leaders—including two others from Cornell University—who received the honor.
Nathan, a prominent authority on tuberculosis, is the R.A. Rees Pritchett Professor of Microbiology and chairman of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology.
Hajjar—dean emeritus of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences, former executive vice provost of WCM, and a professor of pathology and biochem- istry—is an expert on cardiovascular disease. They’ll be inducted into the academy at a ceremony in October
