Clarkson Receives ACLAM Mentor Award

 WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Thomas B. Clarkson, D.V.M., professor of comparative medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, has received the 2009 American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) Mentor Award. This award recognizes individuals who have contributed substantially to the membership of ACLAM by mentoring postdoctoral fellows, graduate students or junior level ACLAM diplomats during the course of their professional careers.

 Clarkson arrived at Wake Forest Baptist in 1957 and is known internationally for his work in nonhuman primates as models for human disease research, including atherosclerosis research with the American Heart Association in the 1970s and 1980s, hormone replacement and women’s health. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed articles and 86 book chapters.

 “Clarkson was a ‘translational researcher’ long before the term was so popular,” said Janice D. Wagner, D.V.M., Ph.D., professor of comparative medicine. “His research has brought millions of dollars to Wake Forest University Health Sciences throughout the years.”

 This award was presented Monday at the ACLAM Forum Awards Dinner at the Loews Ventana Canyon Hotel in Arizona.
