Date:3/4/2013

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 04, 2013

Seven pathology professionals have been recognized for their contributions to the science of pathology at the United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology’s 102nd Annual Meeting. As the leader in pathology education, the USCAP strives to advance the science of pathology and disseminate the latest findings through collaborative works with pathology professionals and their hospitals, labs, and universities.

“We are very pleased to reward this distinguished group for their exhaustive efforts to further pathology science and teaching with these USCAP awards.” commented USCAP President, Linda Ferrell, MD.

The first award recipient, Krishnan Unni, MD, is a 30 year veteran of the Mayo Medical School and served both as a Professor Emeritus of Pathology and Professor Emeritus of Orthopedics. A recipient of the USCAP’s "The Distinguished Pathologist Award", Dr. Unni is recognized for his major contributions to pathology of bone tumors.

Because life long learning is an integral part of any doctor’s career, the USCAP created the "Harvey Goldman Distinguished Teaching and Mentoring Award" as a tribute to honor a dedicated, long-standing educator, and mentor. This year, Sharon W. Weiss, MD, took this honor for her educational impact over three decades to countless residents and fellows. Dr. Weiss currently divides her time at Emory between Department of Pathology and the School of Medicine where she is the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs.

The "F.K. Mostofi Distinguished Service Award" is presented to a member of the USCAP who has rendered outstanding service to the International Academy of Pathology and its US-Canadian Division. This year’s recipient, John Reid Goldblum, MD, is Chairman of the Department of Anatomic Pathology at the Cleveland Clinic. As a leading member of the USCAP’s Education Committee for 14 years, Dr. Goldblum directed the highly successful USCAP "Practical Pathology Seminars" since its inception in addition to creating and teaching many other USCAP courses.

Dr. Jean Silva’s contributions to the USCAP since the 1980’s have made the USCAP a better organization through her continuing efforts. Dr. Silva’s extensive archival work for the USCAP and International Association of Pathology has increased members’ knowledge the organization’s leaders and its history. For her efforts the USCAP has awarded Dr. Silva the USCAP "President’s Award."

Established to recognize a body of work which has contributed significantly to the diagnosis and understanding of human disease the "Ramzi Cotran Young Investigator Award" is restricted to the USCAP members who are under the age of 45. This year’s recipient, Celina G. Kleer, MD, has dedicated her career toward a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms enabling cancer cells to invade and metastasize and the discovery of novel biomarkers for this malignancy. Dr. Kleer serves as the Director of the Breast Pathology Service at the University of Michigan Medical School, where she has been since 2002.

The United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology also honors two world renowned pathologists, Dr. Victor Reuter, MD and Christopher P. Crum, MD, who will each lead a prestigious lecture this year.

Dr. Reuter is the Vice Chairman of the Department of Pathology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and an internationally renowned and respected anatomic pathologist with subspecialty expertise in genitourinary pathology. He will lead the "Maude Abbott Lecture" with his presentation, The Grawitz Tumor; Clearly an Evolutionary Tale.

"The Nathan Kaufman Timely Topics Lecture" is led by Dr. Christopher P. Crum, a world authority on the pathology of the female genital tract. Dr. Crum’s discussion covers his work with colleagues Frank D. McKeon, MD, PhD and Wa Xian, MD, PhD, both of the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, who have recently pursued the hypothesis that specialized cells exist in the oviduct that give rise to serous cancer. Dovetailing this work with cell culture, and recognizing the potential parallels between the unique tissue interfaces in the fimbria and cervix, they are narrowing the search for a putative cell of origin.

The United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology proudly congratulates each of our honorees for their contributions to the science of pathology.
