Topic: Sharing his adventures and collection

Jack Arbiser MD, PhD is an internationally known dermatologist who specializes in minerals of the Southeast USA and Israel. He obtained his BS and MS in organic chemistry at Emory University. During his masters degree, he introduced Dr. Dennis Liotta and Dr. Raymond Schinazi, who developed Emtriva, an antiviral cocktail which transformed HIV/AIDS from a death sentence to a chronic disease. He obtained an MD and PhD (genetics) at Harvard Medical School, dermatology residency at Harvard, and Howard Hughes fellowship with Dr. Judah Folkman, father of the field of angiogenesis. Dr. Arbiser was the first to show how dominant oncogenes stimulate angiogenesis. He returned to Emory, where he became the inaugural Thomas Lawley Professor of Dermatology. He has co-founded Accuitis, a clinical stage company focusing on inflammation and fibrosis, and ABBY with a novel compound for brain tumors.

Hope to see you all there to see and experience Jack's collection.
