April 28, 2014
James M. Wilson, MD, PhD, professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, is this year's co-recipient of the Jane M. Glick Graduate Student Teaching Award for his longstanding, exemplary service to the core mission of education, mentoring, and training the next generation of biomedical scientists in the spirit of scientist-educator Jane Glick, in whose remembrance the award was established.
Dr. Wilson received both his MD and PhD at the University of Michigan Medical School in 1984. Shortly after arriving at Penn in 1993, Dr. Wilson founded the Gene Therapy Graduate Group in BGS, which later evolved into the Gene Therapy and Vaccines (GTV) program in the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Group (CAMB) in BGS. Dr. Wilson also developed the core gene therapy course, CAMB 610 Molecular Basis for Gene Therapy, which is the required course for all first year GTV students. Both students and colleagues have stated that Dr. Wilson is an extraordinary, devoted mentor and teacher who epitomizes the qualities of someone deserving of this award. He shares the award with Dr. Hongzhe Li from the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
