Young Pathologists Receive Awards for Research

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

The United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology recognized Pathologists-in-Training for their exemplary work in the science of pathology. “One of my favorite duties as the USCAP President,” commented Dr. Linda Ferrell, “is to recognize the achievements of young professionals that will lead to better patient care.”

The first award, the “Stowell-Orbison Award”, is given in recognition of outstanding pathology research. Four teams were each the proud recipients of this prestigious recognition and include:
(1) Clarissa Cassol, MD and colleagues, (2) David A. Solomon, MD and colleagues, (3) Andres Matoso, MD and colleagues and (4) Alexis Scherl, MD and colleagues.

The “Benjamin Castleman Award”, instituted by the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Pathology and the USCAP, is given to pathologists under 40 years of age for an outstanding pathology paper based upon human material. This year’s winner is Abner Louissant, MD.

Bojana Djordjevic, MD was awarded the “F. Stephen Vogel Award” for her paper published in the USCAP’s journal of “Modern Pathology” 25(5): 699-708 (May 2012), “Clinical assessment of PTEN loss in endometrial carcinoma: immunohistochemistry outperforms gene sequencing”.

Finally, the Association of Directors of Anatomic and Surgical Pathology joined the USCAP to present two awards. The first, for the best research utilizing autopsy information, was presented to a team led by Yaolin Zhou, MD. The second award for anatomic pathology performed while in training and presented in a poster format was given to the team led by Jake A. Dennis, MD.

“This exemplary research is critical to furthering the science of pathology,” said Dr. Bruce Smoller, Executive Vice President for the USCAP. “This is what the USCAP is all about: furthering pathology science and its applications through continuing education for all pathology professionals.”
