Senior Investigator Judy Lieberman, M.D., Ph.D., will be a featured scientist in a new Harvard publication called Science Connections. She is one of 20 scientists from the Harvard universe, including research institutions and affiliated hospitals, who are profiled in the publication for their exceptional contributions and collaborative spirit.

In the glossy newsletter, Lieberman is featured alongside noted figures such as E.O. Wilson, Doug Melton, Joan Brugge, and Judah Folkman. Next to her photo runs this description: "Battling AIDS on a Global Front: Judy Lieberman, a medical doctor and a theoretical physicist, leads a research team developing methods that could lead to an effective, easy-to-use and inexpensive way to prevent the spread of HIV."

Indeed, Liebermans research is attacking AIDS on a number of fronts, such as through a vaccine now in primate trials and the development of a RNA interference-based microbicide that vulnerable women could use to protect themselves.

The Office of Government, Community, and Public Affairs is producing Science Connections to offer a snapshot of the breadth of Harvard's science and research efforts, and to give community audiences a better sense of the scope and direct impact of Harvard science and research. It will be distributed to Boston and Cambridge residents in April and May of 2007, beginning with the Cambridge Science Fair (April 21-29 at the MIT Museum) and the Bio International Convention 2007 in Boston, May 6-9.
