Rene Jules Dubos, PhD, of the Rockefeller Institute, New York, will receive the Scientific Achievement Award of the American Medical Association in June.

The award, a gold medal, was established in 1960 to honor nonphysician scientists who have done outstanding work. It will be presented to Dubos, a noted philosopher, pathologist, and microbiologist, at the AMA's annual convention in San Francisco during presidential inaugural ceremonies, Tuesday night, June 23.

Dubos' contributions to medical science include development of a rapid method for growing tuberclebacilli in submerged cultures; inquiries into the mechanisms of acquired immunity and resistance to infection, with special stress on tuberculosis; and, the discovery of the antibiotic tyrothricin.

Dubos was born in Saint Brice, France, in 1901. He attended school in Henonville and studied at the College Chaptal and Institut National Agronomique in Paris. He entered his scientific career almost by chance.
