In memory of Ian Orme, Ph.D. (1952-2018) University Distinguished Professor and cofounder of the Mycobacteria Research Laboratories
Ian Orme was one of the world’s leading experts in tuberculosis and immunology, pioneering the mouse and guinea pigs model for tuberculosis research. Some of his most notable accomplishments include receiving the 1994 Roussel Prize, an international research award and the 1999 Charles C. Shepard science award from the Centers for Disease Control. He was elected fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology in 2002, and in 2014 he was elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Ian had more than 300 publications to his name, more than 30 scientific chapters, and proposed nearly 300 grants during his career, raising in excess of $100 million in research funding and shaping the scientific understanding of tuberculosis in a myriad of ways.
