NIAID Dedicates Conference Room to Paul
NIAID recently honored the memory of Dr. William E. Paul by dedicating a conference room in his name at the Vaccine Research Center. Paul served as chief of NIAID’s Laboratory of Immunology from 1970 until his death on Sept. 18, 2015. He was also director of NIH’s Office of AIDS Research from 1993 to 1997.
Paul is remembered annually through an NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series talk named in his honor. The lecture recognizes outstanding contributions to the immunology field. The 2017 William E. Paul WALS lecture was given by NCI’s Dr. Thomas Waldmann, NIH distinguished investigator and co-chief of the Lymphoid Malignancies Branch.
