ASCP's “40 under 40” program recognizes young lab pioneers

May 9, 2014

The American Society for Clinical Pathology’s (ASCP) “40 under 40” program honors 40 pathologists, pathology residents, and laboratory professionals under the age of 40 who have made significant contributions to the profession and stand out as the future of laboratory leadership. ASCP launched the “40 under 40” program to recognize and honor young laboratory professionals for leadership, diverse experience, and innovative work within the laboratory environment. Applicants submitted a resume and an essay addressing their interests in lab medicine, the role of laboratory medicine in an evolving healthcare landscape, or the importance of the laboratory in the clinical care team.

“We are inspired by these young professionals who are passionate about the profession, driven to improve healthcare delivery, and doing amazing work for their institutions and beyond,” says Dr. E. Blair Holladay, Executive Vice President of ASCP. “ASCP’s 40 Under 40 program is an opportunity to recognize these stand-out individuals and give them the support they need to continue achieving greatness and become the next generation of laboratory leaders. It was a difficult task for the committee to select only 40.”

The 40 honorees each will have the opportunity to share their knowledge about topics pertinent to pathology and laboratory medicine with a personal blog on ASCP’s ONELab website. Later this summer, ASCP will select the top five bloggers, who will each receive free registration to attend the ASCP 2014 Annual Meeting, along with a $1,000 stipend toward airfare and lodging. In addition, the winners will receive free enrollment in Lab Management University, a collaborative initiative of ASCP and the American Pathology Foundation. Read more about the 40 under 40.
