David H. Katz , M.D. , received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, in 1963. He obtained his M.D. degree at Duke University Medical School in 1968, following which he obtained postdoctoral house-staff clinical training in internal medicine on the Osier Medical Service at Johns Hopkins Hospital. After completion of his internship and fellowship in Medicine at Hopkins, Dr. Katz spent two years as Staff Associate in the Laboratory of Immunology at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland. His first faculty appointment came in 1971 in the Department of Pathology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. While on the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard from 1971 to 1976, Dr. Katz rose to the rank of Associate Professor. In 1976, Dr. Katz left Harvard to found a new Department of Cellular and Developmental Immunology at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation, La Jolla, California. In early 1982, Dr. Katz left Scripps Clinic to undertake new responsibilities as President and Director of the newly created Medical Biology Institute, also located in La Jolla.
