American Society for Microbiology honors Patrick R. Murray

The 2010 American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Founders Distinguished Service Award is being presented to Patrick R. Murray, Ph.D., D(ABMM), Chief, Clinical Microbiology Laboratories, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, for his more than 25 years of service to ASM. This award recognizes an ASM member for outstanding contributions and commitment to the ASM as a volunteer at the national level.

An ASM member since 1974, Murray's most visible leadership role has been as the Editor-in-Chief of four consecutive editions of the "Manual of Clinical Microbiology," a premier ASM publication. He also served for 15 years on the Editorial Board and as an Editor of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology.

Certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Microbiology (ABMM) in 1978, Murray began volunteering to the Board in 1981. Over 13 years, he served in virtually every ABMM leadership position and ultimately was elected Board Chair in 1991.

While juggling his commitments to ASM Publications and certification, he served as a member of the American Academy of Microbiology's Board of Governors; General Meeting and ICAAC Program Committees; Lab Capacity Building Committee; various award selection committees; and countless ad hoc committees of various ASM Boards. Murray was also Chair of the PSAB's Committee on Laboratory Practices and Division C Chair and Councilor.
