McCabe Fund Awards
2002-2003 Call for Applications

The McCabe Fund Advisory Committee is calling for applications for the Thomas B. and Jeannette E. Laws McCabe Fund Fellow and Pilot Awards for 2002-2003. The McCabe Awards were established in 1969 by a generous gift from Mr. Thomas B. McCabe to Penn's School of Medicine to support junior faculty who initiate fresh and innovative biomedical and surgical research projects and who have received no or limited external research funding while in their first or second year at the School of Medicine or the School of Veterinary Medicine at Penn.

Junior faculty members who are interested in applying for a McCabe Award this year can contact the chair of their department or call Dana J. Napier, School of Medicine Administration, at (215) 573-3221 for more information. The deadline for submission of applications is Monday, May 13. The McCabe Fund Advisory Committee will announce the winners at its June annual meeting.

Last year's winners of the Fellow Awards were: Dr. John C. Kucharczuk, surgery; Dr. Bruce Sachais, pathology and laboratory medicine; and Dr. James M. Schuster, neurosurgery.

Winners of the Pilot Awards were: Dr. Geza Acs, pathology and laboratory medicine; Dr. Rexford S. Ahima, medicine; Dr. Dimitry Y. Baranov, anesthesia; Dr. Jason D. Christie, biostatistics and epidemiology; Dr. Joshua L. Dunaief, ophthalmology; Dr. Thomas F. Floyd, anesthesia; Dr. Adda Grimberg, pediatrics; Dr. Kathleen M. Loomes, pediatrics; Dr. John P. Lynch, medicine; Dr. Kim E. Nichols, pediatrics; Dr. Mark Alan Rosen, radiology; and Dr. Virginia Smith Shapiro, pathology and laboratory medicine.
