Stephen J. Galli, MD, Chair of Pathology, Professor of Pathology and Microbiology and Immunology, and the Mary Hewitt Loveless, MD Professor, is the recipient of the 2014 ASIP (American Society of Investigative Pathology) Rouse Whipple Award.  This award is presented to a senior scientist with a distinguished career in research who has advanced the understanding of disease and has continued productivity at the time of this award.

Dr. Raffick Bowen, Clinical Associate Professor and Associate Medical Director of SHC's Clinical Chemistry and Immunology Laboratory is the recipient of the American Association of Clinical Chemistry's Outstanding Speaker Award for 2013. This award recognizes his achievement in earning a speaker evaluation rating of 4.5 or higher during a 2013 continuing education activity accredited by AACC. The title of Dr. Bowen's presentation is "Implementation of Autoverification in a Clinical Chemistry Laboratory: Theory to Practice"


Richard Kempson, MD, emeritus Professor of Pathology, is the recipient of the 2014 United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) President's Award. The USCAP President's Award is given annually to recognize an individual for outstanding service to the field of pathology.

Dr. Kempson is richly deserving of this award. Dr. Kempson has not only contributed substantially to the surgical pathology literature, particularly in gynecologic and soft tissue pathology but also, with Dr. Ronald Dorfman, he trained a substantial percentage of this and the next generation’s academic and community leaders in surgical pathology.
 
Dr. Kempson's affiliation with Stanford University began in 1968 when he and Dr. Ronald Dorfman were recruited to Stanford to develop a program in surgical pathology. In short order, they established an internationally recognized residency and clinical fellowship program which went on to train more than 275 pathologists in the art and science of diagnostic surgical pathology. Dr. Kempson developed a distinctive teaching style that emphasized precise diagnostic criteria, approaching diagnosis with a broad morphologic differential diagnosis, and most importantly, always highlighting the relevance to patient management of the morphologic distinctions being made.
 
Prior to his recruitment to Stanford, Dr. Kempson was an Assistant Professor of Pathology and Surgical Pathology at Washington University. Dr. Kempson served as an Associate Professor of Pathology at Stanford from 1968 to 1974 and a Professor of Pathology from 1974 to 2001. In addition to his academic duties, he served as Co-Director of Surgical Pathology from 1968 until 2001. He also has served as President of the Association of Directors of Surgical Pathology (1993-1995), the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (1996) and the Arthur Purdy Stout Society (1996) and the California Society of Pathologists. The Richard Kempson, MD, Professorship in Surgical Pathology was established by the Department of Pathology in 2002 to honor him and his remarkable contributions to surgical pathology.
 
Dr. Kempson retired from his faculty position in 2001 and we have been most fortunate that he has been an active emeritus since that time. It is difficult to imagine how the the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology could have selected a more deserving person for its 2014 President's Award.


Dr. Andrew 'Cain' McClary (AP/CP resident) was the recipient of the 2014 Barnes Award given by the North American Head and Neck Pathology for the best head and neck poster at the Annual Meeting of the United States and Canadian Association of Pathologists (USCAP) in San Diego, CA.

“Genomic analysis of ameloblastomas identifies SMO and BRAF mutations that activate the pharmacologically accessible Hedgehog and MAP kinase signaling pathways.”

Dr. Bing 'Melody' Zhang (CP resident) has been awarded the Mary Rodes Gibson Memorial Award in Hemostasis & Thrombosis for her abstract entitled Identification of the Disease-Causing Mutation in Autosomal Dominant Familiar Immune Thrombocytopenia by Genome-Wide Linkage Analysis and Whole Genome Sequencing. This award will be presented at the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology on December 10, 2013. The Mary Rodes Gibson Memorial Award in Hemostatis & Thrombosis was established to recognize a trainee who is a first author and presenter of the highest-scoring abstract submitted in the field of hemostasis and thrombosis.

Melody’s project is:

Zehnder, Identification of the Disease-Causing Mutation in Autosomal Dominant Familiar Immune Thrombocytopenia by Genome-Wide Linkage Analysis and Whole Genome Sequencing.

 

James Faix, MD, Clinical Professor of Pathology and Medical Director of the Clinical Chemistry and Immunology Laboratory at SHC, and
Iris Schrijver, MD
, Professor of Pathology and Medical Director of the Molecular Genetic Pathology Laboratory at SHC are the recipients of a 2013 "College of American Pathologists (CAP) Lifetime Achievement Award". This high honor goes to individuals being recognized for their outstanding contributions to CAP and the specialty of pathology.

 

Dr. Lee Schroeder was recently awarded a 2013 Paul E. Strandjord Young Investigator Award at this year’s Academy of Clinical Laboratory Physicians and Scientists meeting. The award was for his work developing a monte carlo decision tree model from the hospital perspective for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) testing. The Paul E. Strandjord Young Investigator Award program is designed to encourage young investigators to consider a career in academic laboratory medicine.
