Biographical history

One of the world's most accomplished virologists, Charles M. Rice III, PhD, the Maurice R. and Corinne P. Greenberg Professor in Virology at The Rockefeller University, made seminal discoveries about the hepatitis C virus that helped transform infections with the virus from deadly to curable. After joining the Department of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in 1986, he received the prestigious Pew Biomedical Scholars Award that year for young investigators of outstanding promise. He served as interim head of his department from 1993 to 1997 and was named professor in 1995. He became an adjunct professor in the department when he left Washington University in 2001 to join The Rockefeller University faculty and become the founding scientific and executive director of the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C, a position he still holds as of 2019.
