Jo Rae Wright Award for Outstanding Science Award

Jo Rae Wright, PhD and former ATS President, focused her career in two main areas: the advancement of science and mentoring the succeeding generation of scientists. Early in 2012, Dr. Wright lost her courageous fight against breast cancer. To honor her memory and her illustrious career, the American Thoracic Society established the Jo Rae Wright Award for Outstanding Science.

As a fitting testimony to her work, we are pleased that the first recipient of the award was a young colleague from Dr. Wright’s own laboratory at Duke University.
