Alfred Imre Tauber, MD
Emeritus Professor
Boston University School of Medicine
Dept of Medicine
Hematology & Medical Oncology

MD, Tufts University School of Medicine



Dr. Tauber is a hematologist and biochemist by training. He served an internship and residency at the University of Washington Affiliated Hospitals, followed by advanced training at Tufts-New England Medical Center, Brigham and Women¹s Hospital (Boston) and MIT. He spent four years on the faculty at Harvard Medical School before joining Boston University School of Medicine in 1982. Aside from over 125 research papers in immunology, biochemistry, and cell biology, Dr. Tauber has published extensively on 19th and 20th century biomedicine, contemporary science studies, and ethics. While working in the context of philosophy of science, this latter work more closely aligns with the history of ideas and moral philosophy, where the philosophical problems associated with personal identity, the value structure of science, and the attempts to find coherence in a world fragmented by competing notions of truth have required an inter-disciplinary approach.
