Dear Folks -
This week in Bill's absence we will here from Dr. Thomas Caskey, an
internationally renowned geneticist and St. Paul's member.
CEO of the Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine for the
Prevention of Human Diseases, he "is a distinguished scientist with a
highly respected record of accomplishment in his research field as well
as success in his private-sector enterprises," noted the UT Health
Science Center upon his appointment. His genetic research includes
documenting the universality of the genetic code, identifying the
genetic basis of 10 major heritable diseases, and developing a viral
vector vaccine for HIV. He recently consulted with the Episcopalians
about homosexuality from his medical perspective. Recent gifts to St.
Paul's Foundation have been designated to these funds.
