E. Clinton Lawrence, a native Texan, received his BA from the University of Texas at Austin and MD from the University of Texas-Southwestern Medical School, both in 1973. After a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of California-San Francisco Dr. Lawrence performed immunology research at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Heath, where he developed an interest in the lungs immune system. He then pursued pulmonary subspecialty training at Baylor College of Medicine after which he joined the faculty, establishing and directing first the Rockwell-McKelvey Pulmonary Immunology Laboratory, followed by the heart-lung and lung transplantation programs.

After a brief period as co-medical director of lung transplantation at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Lawrence was recruited to Emory in 1993 as Professor of Medicine and Medical Director of Lung Transplantation. In 2001 Dr. Lawrence was appointed Director of the newly established Andrew J. McKelvey Lung Transplantation Center at Emory University School of Medicine and holder of the Augustus J.
