Be safe and be well.

Remembering former FAES President and NIH Geneticist Dr. Philip Leder (1934–2020). Dr. Leder served on the FAES Board of Directors from 1968 to 2004 and served as FAES President from 1971 to 1973. "[Dr. Leder's] remarkable scientific career at the NIH and later at Harvard brought forth breakthroughs in genetic engineering, immunology, and cancer research. Career highlights included the development of the first recombinant DNA vector system to meet specified safety standards, which he used to clone the gene for globin (the first cloned mammalian gene), and a series of creative experiments involving the c-myc gene and Burkitt's lymphoma that proved that the deregulation of a normal gene can cause cancer. He was recognized for his achievements with the Lasker Award (1987), the National Medal of Science (1989), the Israeli Harvey Prize (1983), the Dutch Heineken Prize (1990), and election to both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine."
