Having accrued more than two decades of inimitable experience in the field of microbiology, Dr. Green earned the distinguished title of a professor emeritus at the University of Missouri in 2001. A parasitologist who extensively studied and taught the discipline, he formerly worked in the field as a research assistant and associate at the Sterling Winthrop Research Institute in Rensselaer, New York, beginning in 1957. The position, which happened into by chance, was the result of Dr. Green touring the pharmacology facility while waiting to hear back about another opportunity with the New York Department of Wildlife Conservation. Offered a position by the chairperson the very next day, he enjoyed more than a decade at the Institute, where he had the opportunity to work alongside a team of four medical doctors who were studying the heart, lung and liver transplants in his laboratory. Responsible for recording their data, Dr. Green gained tremendous expertise in surgery, which he carried with him throughout the rest of his career.
Over the next six years, Dr. Green worked for Warren-Teed Pharmaceuticals in Columbus, Ohio, where he headed animal care and research. He subsequently began working on his master's and doctorate degrees while serving two years as the College of Biological Sciences vivarium supervisor at the Ohio State University between 1975 and 1977. Following graduation, Dr. Green contributed for another three years in the field as a senior research scientist for Parke-Davis in Detroit, a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Dr. Green joined the University of Missouri faculty of the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1980.
During the length of his remarkable career, Dr. Green was the co-director and director of a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) malaria vaccine research grant. He served as chair of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and authored the University of Missouri position paper on the use of animals in research. He also contributed numerous scholarly articles in scientific journals as an author and co-author with some of his former students. Invested in his community, Dr. Green was the chairperson and president of the Foundation of the United Methodist Church in Columbia, as well as the founder and chairperson of the church's Heritage Fund.
Enlisting in the U.S. Naval Reserve in 1952, Dr. Green served for eight years. While active in the military, he pursued an education at Cornell University where he received a Bachelor of Science in wildlife conservation in 1957. He later received both a Master of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy at the Ohio State University in 1975 and 1977, respectively. To support his career, Dr. Green has been active with the New York Academy of Science. He is also a member of the honorable societies of Sigma Xi, Phi Zeta and previously of his local Kiwanis.
Dr. Green has been recognized with a Veterinary Teaching Award, as well as a Gold Chalk Award from his students as a University of Missouri faculty member.
