Walter Boron, MD, PhD, has won election to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies (IOM), one of the United State’s most prestigious societies for health and medicine.

The Institute of Medicine on Monday named Dr. Boron among 70 new members and 10 foreign associates announced as part of the 2014 class. The individuals are chosen by active IOM members, using criteria that include significant contributions to medical sciences, health care and/or public health.
