WASHINGTON, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR) announced today the winners of the 11th annual Michael E. DeBakey Journalism Awards.

"Eleven years later, the DeBakey Journalism Award is recognized as one of the most prestigious prizes in science writing. The Awards are a wonderful opportunity for scientists and the media to converge in celebration of strides made in science and medicine."
