Alice S. Weissfeld wins 2004 bioMrieux Sonnenwirth Award

WASHINGTON, DC--APRIL 23, 2004--Alice S. Weissfeld, Ph.D., President and Chief Operating Officer of Microbiology Specialists Incorporated, Houston, Texas, will receive the bioMrieux Sonnenwirth Award for Leadership in Clinical Microbiology from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Given in memory of Alexander Sonnenwirth and supported by bioMrieux, Inc., the award honors Weissfeld for her dedication to ASM and for her efforts in advancing clinical microbiology as a profession. At the General Meeting, she will present the bioMrieux Sonnenwirth Award/ASM Division C Lecture, "What I Did for Love."

Weissfeld's work on policy issues, particularly those affecting practice standards and reimbursement, has had an extraordinary impact on the profession of clinical microbiology. She served on several key federal committees that developed national policies for documentation and claims processing required for reimbursing laboratory services, and she has been an advisor and reviewer for the National Committee on Clinical and Laboratory Standards.

Exemplary service to ASM is another hallmark of Weissfeld's achievements. Since 1995, she has chaired ASM's Professional Affairs Committee, which monitors practice standards for microbiologists and comments on proposed laws and regulations. She also served on the Laboratory Practices for Microbiology Committee, which reviews legislation affecting the science and technology of microbiology laboratory practice. Weissfeld has been especially active in working with committees of the American Board of Medical Microbiology (ABMM), a component of the American Academy of Microbiology that certifies microbiologists seeking to direct public health or clinical microbiology laboratories.

Weissfeld received a B.A. in biology from Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in microbiology from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. In addition to leading Microbiology Specia
