American Surgical Association Honors Pellegrini and Clowes

The American Surgical Association, the nation's oldest surgical organization, has honored School of Medicine professors Carlos Pellegrini and Alexander Clowes.

At the association's annual meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., members elected Pellegrini as the association's 126th president. Pellegrini, the Henry N. Harkins professor and chair of the Department of Surgery, has been a member of the association since 1988.

Clowes, professor of surgery and head of the Division of Vascular Surgery, received one of the association's highest honors, the Flance-Karl Award. The award is presented to a U.S. surgeon who has made a seminal contribution in basic laboratory research which has application to clinical surgery. Clowes studies the biology of the vascular response to injury.
