June 16, 2014


The Martinos Center's Umar Mahmood and Anna Moore are among the 46 researchers to be honored with the 2014 Distinguished Investigator Award from the Academy of Radiology Research. This prestigious honor recognizes individuals for their accomplishments in the field of medical imaging.

"The recipients of this Award have made significant contributions to the field of imaging research and are in the top 10% of Radiology Department faculty nationwide,” Stanley Baum, MD, the Chair of the Academy’s Distinguished Investigator Workgroup, said in a statement. Dr. Baum also noted other criteria met by the awardees, including sustained productivity, with at least 25 peer-reviewed scientific research publications as the first or senior author, and demonstrated accomplishment as an independent investigator with a substantial ongoing research program, with at least 6 cumulative years of funding as the Principal Investigator of a major research grant.

Drs. Mahmood and Moore and the other recipients will be inducted into the Academy’s Council of Distinguished Investigators in November, during a ceremony at the 2014 annual meeting of Radiological Society of North America.

Congratulations to both!
