Dr. Gerald Gleich is a Professor of Medicine and Professor of Dermatology. Before joining the faculty at the University of Utah School of Medicine, Dr. Gleich was a faculty member at the Mayo Medical School for 36 years. In his tenure there, he was honored with the Distinguished Investigator for 13 years, Professor of Immunology and Medicine, and Chairman of the Department of Immunology.
Dr. Gleich has had a life-long professional commitment to understanding the eosinophil with a focus on its distinctive granules. He and his colleagues have isolated, characterized, identified the cDNAs and the genes and established assays for measurement and localization of all of the principal granule proteins. These efforts lead to the recognition that eosinophil degranulation with release of cytotoxic and cytostimulatory cationic proteins into tissues is characteristic of eosinophil-associated diseases and to recognition of several novel syndromes.
Dr. Gleich also serves on many Medical Advisory Boards and Study Selections. He is currently a member and Chair of the Data and Safety Monitoring Board, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, President of the International Eosinophil Society, and member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Dr. Gleich has contributed over 600 articles to the scientific literature.
As an internationally recognized allergy expert, Dr. Gleich has received numerous awards and honors, including the Landmark in Allergy Award, Fellowship Award of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Honorable Membership in the Pharmacia Allergy Research Foundation.
