LOS ANGELES (JANUARY 28, 2011) The Western Society of Clinical Investigation has honored David L. Rimoin, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Genetics Institute, with its 2011 Mayo Soley Award for lifetime achievement in medical research and mentorship.

The award was presented to Rimoin on Thursday, Jan. 27 at the society's annual meeting with the Western Association of Physicians and the Western Society for Pediatric Research in Carmel, Calif.

He is director of the International Skeletal Dysplasia Registry, the largest such registry in the world. Rimoin has written articles for more than 410 peer-reviewed publications and his book, Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practices of Medical Genetics, is in its fifth edition.
