BMC radiologist receives 2010 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award from AAWR
Date:12/10/2010

(Boston) Ewa Kuligowska-Noble, MD, FACR, a radiologist at Boston Medical Center (BMC) and a professor of radiology at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), is the recipient of the 2010 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award from the American Association for Women Radiologists. The award, which is presented annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of radiology, was given to Kuligowska during the Association's annual business meeting luncheon on Nov. 29 in Chicago, IL.

Kuligowska, who was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, earned her medical degree from Warsaw Medical School. She also completed her residency in diagnostic radiology in 1970 at Warsaw Medical School. In 1972, Kuligowska emigrated to the United States and completed a second residency in diagnostic radiology at Temple University in Philadelphia, followed by a fellowship in body imaging. She passed the American Board of Radiology examination in 1978 and moved to Boston to join the radiology department at BUSM in July of the same year.

In 1980, Kuligowska was appointed chief of the ultrasound section, and in 1993, chief of the abdominal imaging section at BMC. Kuligowska was promoted to professor of radiology in 1989 at BUSM.

In 1990 and 2002, Kuligowska received the teacher of the year award for radiology at BUSM. She has authored or co-authored more than 150 research articles, reviews and abstracts for national and international meetings. She also has authored one book and 15 book chapters.

Over the course of her career, Kuligowska's contributions have included developing and promoting ultrasound guided abdominal and pelvic biopsies and drainages using novel transrectal, transvaginal and abdominal approaches. She also has focused on ultrasound applications for the diagnosis and management of gynecologic disorders.

Kuligowska has mentored many young radiologists throughout her career, encouraging students, junior faculty and others to develop and pursue their academic careers while balancing their family and professional lives.

"This award holds a special meaning for me, as Marie Curie has always been a professional model and a guardian angel in my life," said Kuligowska. "Particularly during difficult times, her perseverance gave me the confidence to pursue my goals and overcome obstacles in my career and in my life."
