BTER Foundation announces winners of the William S. Baer Award
Date:2/15/2011

The BioTherapeutics, Education & Research (BTER) Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2010 William S. Baer Award for Outstanding Service in the Advancement of Biotherapy. The 6 award winners were presented at the 8th International Conference on Biotherapy, held recently in Los Angeles; they are: David Armstrong, MD, DPM, PhD; John Church, MD, FRCSE; Pam Mitchell; Eliot Mostow, MD, MPH; Kosta Mumcuoglu, PhD; and Aletha Tippett, MD, MCh.

The William S. Baer Award was established by the BTER Foundation in 2009, in honor of Dr. Baer. Dr. Baer was the first Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins University, and "grandfather" of maggot therapy in the 20th Century. The name "biotherapy" was originally coined by Dr. Church, one of the 2010 winners, during a brainstorming session at Ronald Sherman's maggot therapy laboratory in 1994. Initially, the term was applied only to maggot therapy, leech therapy and bee venom therapy; but soon other biotherapeutic disciplines were brought into the fold, including helmintherapy, canine olfactory detection, service dogs, hippotherapy, and more. Dr. Church is considered by many to be the "Ambassador of Biotherapy," traveling world-wide to teach and learn about all living organisms that can aid in healthcare. He was a Founding Member of the International Biotherapy Society, and its first President: 1996 - 1998.

Dr. Armstrong, director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA), was selected as an award winner because of his important research in maggot therapy, and his integration of maggot debridement therapy (MDT) into the hospital, the wound care clinic, and the classroom.

Dr. Mostow, head of the Dermatology Section at Northeast Ohio University College of Medicine and founder of the Wound Care Associates of Akron, has been using and teaching about maggot therapy for over a decade. Upon receiving the award, Dr. Mostow commented: "I owe much to the patience and enth
