The Academic Senate is pleased to announce the selection of Homer A. Boushey M.D. as the recipient of the Fourth Annual Distinguished Clinical Research Lectureship.
Since 2001, this distinction has been bestowed on a member of the UCSF faculty with outstanding achievements in clinical research. Nominations are made by UCSF faculty, who consider the clinical research contributions of their colleagues and submit nominations for this prestigious award to the Academic Senate Committee on Research. Each year, the Committee on Research selects the recipient of this award. This year, the Academic Senate is honored to recognize the achievements of Dr. Boushey.
Dr. Boushey joined the UCSF faculty in 1974, after completing his Residency here. He currently holds appointments as Professor of Medicine, as Chief of the Division of Allergy and Immunology, and as a member of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. He is immediate past President of the American Thoracic Society.
Dr. Boushey is recognized nationally and internationally for his preeminence in the field of pulmonary medicine. He is an expert in clinical research on diseases of the airways, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and has focused on the effects of pollutants, allergens and infectious agents.
Dr. Boushey is widely respected by UCSF faculty and students alike – he is an outstanding collaborator, exceptional teacher and dedicated mentor. His contributions to both clinical research and education are remarkable.
