Hospital Doctor Award 2004 for University research team
Professor Stephen Holgate and his research team in the University of Southampton's School of Medicine have won the prestigious Academic Medicine category in the Hospital Doctor Awards 2004.
Professor Holgate and his team in the University's Infection, Inflammation and Repair Division are leaders in research into the causes and treatment of asthma.
The judge for the category, which was run in association with the Royal College of Physicians, said: "This is an internationally competitive team and an example of the very best in British medicine, linking basic scientists who are collaborating not only with clinicians but with each other. They have authored national guidelines and influenced policy at the highest national level."
Medical newspaper Hospital Doctor runs the awards which celebrate clinical excellence and achievement in hospital medicine. Specialists and their teams compete across ten categories and are judged on their innovation, leadership, teamwork and effective use of resources. It is the fourteenth year of the event.
Professor Holgate commented: "We are all thrilled about the news of being selected for this award from Hospital Doctor. This illustrates the support that the University and the Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust have given us over the years, and the wonderful team we have been able to build here at Southampton General Hospital."
