The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) congratulates Daniel S. Pine, M.D., one of three NIH scientists elected as members of the prestigious Institute of Medicine (IOM). Dr. Pine is the chief of the Section on Development and Affective Neuroscience in the NIMH Intramural Research Program.
Election to the IOM is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. Current, active IOM membership elects new members annually from candidates nominated for professional achievement and commitment to service. “Selection to the IOM is a marker of an outstanding scientific career,” said NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. “We are proud of our accomplished scientists and congratulate them on this honor.”
