About the Award

Established to honor Herbert Lansky, MD, FCAP, the award is presented to a board-certified pathologist who has demonstrated respected leadership consistent with the goals of the College of American Pathologists Foundation and who has made significant contributions to the field of pathology. In his early career, Dr. Lansky has distinguished himself as an excellent pathologist, scientist, and educator of national prominence. While maintaining a high standard of excellence in his laboratories, Dr. Lansky also has mentored 18 individuals, is regularly published in respected peer-reviewed journals, and has developed a novel “anti-adhesion peptide” that ultimately may affect the treatment of leukemia and heart disease.

Each year, this award is presented to a pathologist who has demonstrated leadership that is consistent with CAP Foundation goals and has made substantial contributions to the science or education of pathology. The Foundation is looking for a physician leader who is 50 or younger on December 31 of the award year who has helped to:

  • promote science, education, and charitable activities in the field of pathology that have resulted in practice innovation and quality medicine in the best interests of patients.
  • provide leadership and resources to assure continuing excellence in the science, art, and practice of pathology by identifying critical issues that impact pathology and the public.
  • educate the profession and public about the critical issues and research results.
