Donald H. Buchholz Research Prize

The Peter Jatlow, MD, Resident Research Award, formerly the Donald H. Buchholz Research Prize, is awarded annually to a resident in the Department of Laboratory Medicine. The prize is in honor of Dr. Peter Jatlow, former Chair of the department.  The objective of the award is to recognize innovative and/or significant research accomplishments by residents performed during their two years in the CP residency program. The award includes $500 and a certificate that will be presented at the graduation ceremony. 2013 witnessed the last presentation of the Donald H. Buchholz Research prize to Dr. Susan Fink. Also in 2013, the first year of the Peter Jatlow, MD, Resident Research Award was presented to Dr. Alexander Ryder.


The winner of the 2014 Peter Jatlow, MD, Resident Research award is Dr. Eric Gehrie for his project titled,"Quantitative assessment of peri-transfusion vital signs and infusion rates to determine 'expected' variations in these parameters and their effect on transfusion safety."
