2013 Canada Gairdner Global Health Award goes to King Holmes for STD work
Date:3/20/2013

TDs has expanded the scope of this field tremendously. Numerous clinical trials conducted by Holmes have led to many diagnostic tests and standard-of-care therapies used today to treat and prevent such conditions as human papilloma virus, gonorrhea, chlamydial infections, and genital herpes, to name a few."

John Dirks, president and scientific director of the Gairdner Foundation, told The Lancet that Holmes "brought to medicine and public health the proper means of diagnosing, treating, and preventing STDs and of understanding their epidemiology. In addition, his amazing gift of mentorship launched so many trainees to the forefront of the global health scene, which, thanks in great measure to their achievements, is now a flourishing discipline in its own right. Holmes' huge lifetime contribution has no parallel. Among the many mountains on the public health landscape he stands out as an Everest."

Holmes holds the William H. Foege Endowed Chair in Global Health. He founded and directs the UW Center for AIDS and STD, which provides patient care, training and education, research and international technical assistance in the field of sexually transmitted diseases. Holmes is also head of Infectious Diseases at Harborview Medical Center.
