Girish N. Vyas, Ph.D. recently completed his sabbatical leave in the UCLA Department of Pediatrics. He currently serves as Professor of Laboratory Medicine. After receiving his Ph.D. degree in Microbiology from the University of Bombay in 1965, he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1967 he joined UCSF as a Lecturer in the Department of Medicine. He served as Director of Blood Bank at UCSF Medical Center from 1969-89. His seminal contributions to our current knowledge about transfusion safety, IgA deficiency, viral hepatitis B, and transfusion-transmitted HIV have culminated in his current pursuit of research on in vitro genetic diversification of prevalent HIV-1 strains co-cultured in CD4-enriched pools of human PBMC for developing an inactivated polyvalent HIV-envelope subunit vaccine against HIV-1 infection. Dr. Vyas has served on several committees of NAS-NRC, NIH, CDC, FDA, WHO, AABB, ASH, and UNDP. As an American Fulbright Scholar he worked on the molecular biology of hepatitis B virus at the Pasteur Institute in 1980. He is currently the Chairman of the IABS Publications Committee and Editor-in-Chief for BIOLOGICALS. He has edited 12 books and monographs and published 220 original papers on his research in genetics and virology related to Transfusion Medicine.
