Awarded to Michael Matthay, MD
The Academic Senate is pleased to announce the selection of Michael A. Matthay, M.D., as recipient of the Sixth Annual Distinguished Clinical Research Lectureship for his preeminence in the field of clinical studies centering on problems of critical care, especially the mechanisms of acute lung injury and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) and the resolution of pulmonary edema.
Since 2001, this award has been bestowed on an individual 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. Michael Matthay.
Dr. Matthay received his AB from Harvard in 1969, his MD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1973, and his clinical training in Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado. He joined the UCSF faculty in 1979, where he began his research fellowship and completed his Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine training in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. He currently holds appointments as Professor of Medicine and Anesthesia and is a Senior Associate in the Cardiovascular Research Institute.
Dr. Matthay is widely respected by UCSF faculty members and students alike – he is an outstanding collaborator, exceptional teacher, dedicated mentor, and extraordinary clinician. His contributions to both clinical research and education are remarkable.
