ACP Governor receives national rheumatology award

From the December ACP Observer, copyright 2004 by the American College of Physicians.

Edward D. Harris Jr., FACP, Governor for the College's Northern California Chapter and Vice Chair of the ACP Publications Committee, has received the distinguished rheumatologist award from the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). The award recognizes outstanding contributions in the areas of patient care, clinical scholarship or service to benefit patients who have rheumatic diseases.


Dr. Harris



Dr. Harris was recognized for his research defining tissue destruction mechanisms in rheumatoid arthritis. He helped prove that the rheumatoid pannus works as a locally invasive malignancy, producing large amounts of matrix metalloproteases that can degrade cartilage and other joint components. Dr. Harris received the award, which is given once each year, in October during the ACR's annual meeting.

Between 1987 and 1995, Dr. Harris chaired the department of medicine at Stanford University. Prior to that, he helped produce the first edition of the "Textbook of Rheumatology" in 1979, and is now editor-in-chief of that textbook's seventh edition. He is also editor of The Pharos, the journal of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical society.

Dr. Harris became a Fellow in the College in 1969 and was elected Chapter Governor in 2001. He also recently was elected to fellowship in London's Royal College of Physicians.
