Nominations sought for 2021 Grant W. Liddle Award; deadline is Jan. 31

Nominations are sought for the 2021 Grant W. Liddle Award.  This award was established in 1983 by the Vanderbilt University Medical Center House Staff to recognize faculty members who demonstrate exemplary leadership in the promotion of scientific research at VUMC. 

A native of American Folk, Utah, Dr. Liddle graduated first in his class from the University of Utah in 1943.  After obtaining an M.D. degree from the University of California, San Francisco, in 1948, he served as a post-doctoral fellow at the newly formed Metabolic Research Unit at the NIH. In 1956, Dr. Liddle was recruited by Dr. Hugh J. Morgan to become Director of Endocrinology at Vanderbilt University. He was named Chairman of the Department of Medicine in 1968, a position he held until 1983. 

This year’s winner will be recognized at the 39th Annual GME Research Forum at noon on Thursday, April 8, during a virtual presentation. Last year’s Liddle Award winner, Guatam Bhave, MD, PhD, will present this year’s award together with House Staff Advisory Council Co-Chairs. 

Nominations may be submitted online at https://redcap.link/2021LiddleAward.  Deadline for submission is Friday, Jan. 31.
