This award is given to four trainees of Pathology at the annual United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) Annual Meeting (Mar 2-8, 2013) who present the best paper through the medium of a poster presentation.

McKerrow’s Parasitic Disease Research Garners Mendel Medal
June 16, 2010
James McKerrow, PhD, a UCSF expert on parasites that afflict the poorest populations on Earth, recently visited a better-off land—the Czech Republic.
He didn’t jump the pond to reprise his stateside science lecture on “Things that Go Bump in the Night.” And his purpose was not to check out the famous pea garden that led to the discovery of basic rules governing the inheritance of biological traits.
