Michael Lederman, MD, FIDSA, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH

Michael Lederman is the Scott R. Inkley Professor of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland where he is also Professor of Biomedical Ethics, Pathology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology. Dr. Lederman received his bachelorís degree in Biology from Brandeis University and his M.D. from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. He trained in Internal Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals of Cleveland and the VA Medical Center where he served as chief resident in Medicine and completed fellowship training in Infectious Diseases. He received post-doctoral training in cellular immunology in the laboratory of Dr. Jerrold Ellner and he joined the faculty at Case in 1980. Dr. Lederman has been engaged in HIV/AIDS research since he and Dr. Oscar Ratnoff first described and characterized the occurrence of AIDS-related immune deficiency in otherwise healthy men with hemophilia in 1983. He has authored more than 250 peer-reviewed scientific publications largely focused on the mechanisms whereby HIV infection induces immune deficiency and on strategies to correct and prevent it. In 1985, Dr. Lederman established the Special Immunology Unit at University Hospitals of Cleveland that was the first dedicated HIV clinic in Northeast Ohio and is now one of the largest providers of comprehensive HIV care in the Midwestern United States. In 1987, he established the AIDS Clinical Trials Unit at Case/University Hospitals and within the national network of these units, the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), he directs the network of Immunology Service Laboratories that provides immunologic monitoring of national HIV treatment trials. Dr. Lederman is a member of the Association of American Physicians, the American Association of Immunologists, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the HIV Medicine Association and is a Fellow of the American Association of Microbiology. He serves on the editorial boards of several research journals, and is a member of the Scientific Advisory Boards for the Forum for Collaborative Research and the Agence Nationale de Researche sur le SIDA (ANRS).
