United States and Canadian
Academy of Pathology

The F. Stephen Vogel Award was established by contributions to a fund created by his family and friends. It is to be awarded in recognition of an outstanding paper by a resident or fellow published in one of the Academy journals, Modern Pathology or Laboratory Investigation, during the preceding calendar year. Thus, the 2017 award will be based on papers published during the calendar year 2016.

The awardee must: (1) be a USCAP member, in good standing, at least one year prior to receiving the award; (2) possess an M.D., or international equivalent, degree; and (3) be a pathologist-in-training (resident or fellow) in a program accredited for training at the time the scientific investigation on which the article is based was initiated and substantially completed. Applicants should be the first author or submit documentation of a significant contribution to the paper.

On papers with multiple authors, only one author is eligible, and only one paper per author may be submitted. The prize will consist of a check for $1,000 and a certificate. Applicants should complete the application form available by clicking here and electronically submit the form along with a reprint (or preprint) of their manuscript to The Vogel Award Committee will select the awardee.

This award will be presented on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 during the USCAP Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Funds for travel are not included and the awardee does not have to be present at the meeting.

Most-Recent Awardee

Charlotte (C.F.) Kweldam, M.D.

Charlotte (C.F.) Kweldam, M.D., grew up in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, where she completed her medical school in 2012 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. With special interest in radiologic pathology correlation, she did an elective clerkship in her final year in the Department of Radiology at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD. In 2013, she started her residency in the Department of Pathology at the Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam in The Netherlands. During her pathology training she developed an interest in uropathology and molecular pathology. After one year of training she enrolled into a Ph.D. program on prostate cancer, and has been actively involved in several research projects, including working with Theo van der Kwast, M.D., Ph.D. on the prognostic value of cribriform morphology in prostate cancer. This work has given her the opportunity to initiate a collaboration between her institution and the Canadian Prostate Cancer Genome Consortium, in search of molecular determinants for her histomorphological findings.
