Assembly on Respiratory Structure and Function Dr. Robert Crapo Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award in Pulmonary Diagnostics

The award honors the life achievements of Robert Crapo, M.D., an international leader in the study of pulmonary function diagnostics. Dr. Crapo’s seminal work focused on novel approaches to standardize pulmonary function testing that markedly advanced our understanding of the importance of these invaluable tests.  We gratefully acknowledge Medical Graphics Corporation (MGC Diagnostics) for their support.  The successful recipient manifests a lifetime dedication and accomplishment in the study of pulmonary diagnostic testing.

The award will consist of an honorarium and a plaque, to be presented at the ATS International Conference.

The eligibility criteria reflect what we know to be the priorities of Dr. Crapo during his extraordinarily productive career.

Criteria:

  • An established or senior investigator with recognized and distinguished scientific achievement in the field of pulmonary function testing or exercise physiology.
  • This award will be given to an RSF Assembly member but suitable candidates from other ATS Assemblies will be considered.
  • The award recognizes a lifetime of achievement in the use of pulmonary function testing, diagnostics, standardization and application.
  • Work by the successful candidate should have impacted diagnostic approaches/pulmonary function testing in either the clinic or laboratory on a global scale.
  • Established investigators that have also translated novel in vivo models into new approaches to human and population studies of pulmonary function will also be competitive.
  • Nominee’s current curriculum vitae including a list of the nominee’s publications.
  • Nominator’s letter should clearly address the importance and impact of the candidate’s accomplishments in the fields of pulmonary diagnostics.
