Date:8/5/2009

RICHMOND, Va. (Aug. 5, 2009) An internationally recognized Virginia Commonwealth University physician has been named a recipient of the 2010 Maxwell Finland Award for his pioneering contributions that have advanced the understanding of infectious diseases, joining an esteemed group of past recipients who have made a remarkable impact on clinical practice, public health and research.
