A Salute to Accomplishment
John Spudich, Ph.D., second from right, holder of the Robert A. Welch Distinguished Chair in Chemistry at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, enjoys a reception in honor of his election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an inter-national learned society founded by John Adams in 1780. In brief remarks, he attributed “at least 50 percent of the credit” to his wife and research collaborator, Elena Spudich, second from left. He also introduced four faculty members in the Center for Membrane Biology, which he directs in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
With the Spudiches are Mauro Ferrari, left, professor and director of nanotechnology at The Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine for the Prevention of Human Diseases, and Roberto Arduino, M.D., director of the AIDS Program, Center for the Study of Emerging and Reemerging Pathogens, and professor of internal medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Medical School.
