The American Society for Microbiology honors Ellen Jo Baron
Date:5/21/2012

and has promoted the field of clinical microbiology to undergraduate and graduate students throughout the United States and the world. "I am in awe of her energy and her tireless efforts to not only promote ASM, but to promote the field of Medical Microbiology and to ensure a minimum standard of excellence in clinical laboratory practice throughout the world," says Karen Carroll, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

In addition to her extensive service to the ASM, Baron has also volunteered her time to many other entities. She is a past microbiology representative on the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services Clinical Laboratory Improvement Advisory Committee, and served for almost 10 years on the Council of Clinical Advisors for the NIH Clinical Laboratories. Baron has been on the editorial boards of several key clinical microbiology journals, has written or edited over 30 books and chapters, and is widely published in peer-reviewed journals in the area of diagnostic microbiology and infectious diseases (with over 100 publications). She is a past recipient of ASM's bioMrieux Sonnenwirth Award for Leadership in Clinical Microbiology and the Alice C. Evans Award for serving as a role model for women in the field. She won the Kenneth L. Vosti Teaching Award from the Infectious Diseases Division at Stanford, and is a Fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Baron currently serves as a representative on the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute's Microbiology Area Resource Committee.

Baron is also very active in the field of diagnostic microbiology as a symposium presenter and author. For the World Health Organization, she co-developed the program for antimicrobial resistance monitoring and basic microbiology, which she presented in a number of resource-poor countries from 1995-1998 and again in 2005. In 2007, Baron developed a new basic microbiology training program for developing world sites, which has been presented in Co
