Three UCSF Faculty Members Named to Institute of Medicine
Three UCSF faculty members, including CTSI's Jennifer Puck, MD, are among the 70 newly elected members of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which recognizes those who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service in the areas of medical sciences, health care, and public health.
Jennifer Puck, MD, is a professor of immunology and pediatrics and director of CTSI's Pediatric Clinical Research Center managed by the Clinical Research Services program. Focusing on human primary immunodeficiency, Puck’s achievements have included mapping and identifying the genes for X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (XSCID) and autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS); a clinical trial of retroviral gene therapy for patients with XSCID who failed bone marrow transplantation; and definition of the disease and gene defects in STAT3 in Job syndrome, a multisystem disorder. Puck also developed a test, now part of the standard newborn screening panel in several states, which screens all newborns for severe lymphocyte disorders based on detecting T-cell receptor excision circles (TREC).
