William Gerin (Ph.D., Columbia University, 1985, under Stanley Schachter) is widely known for his work to further the evolution of the field of health psychology and behavioral medicine. He has, for example, been extremely active in the two main societies: he is currently Program Chair of the American Psychosomatic Society (APS) and is serving a 3-year term as Chair of the Program Oversight Committee for the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM). He has a keen interest in the training and mentoring of junior faculty in bio-behavioral medicine in terms of career strategies and the development of grant applications for NIH. Thus, for example, he has conducted a seminar series on this topic for the past three years at the SBM annual convention and has been asked to develop a similar program for APS. He has also taught seminars in grant writing at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and North General Hospital and currently works with Fellows at Columbia University, providing guidance in proposal writing. As a member of a department of medicine throughout his 25-year career, Gerin has extensive experience with the challenges that health and bio-behavioral faculty must face. Promotion is dependent in many departments on successful grant funding, most often to the NIH, but virtually no training is ever given these junior members in how to go about obtaining grants. Gerin is himself the recipient of several NIH funding awards, has served as a consultant on several other NIH awards, and has reviewed and edited proposals in a broad range of areas.
