Melvin Weinstein wins 2004 BD Award for Research in Clinical Microbiology

WASHINGTON, DC--APRIL 23, 2004--Melvin P. Weinstein, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Pathology, and Chief, Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases, UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, New Jersey, will receive the prestigious BD Award for Research in Clinical Microbiology from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Weinstein is honored with the 2004 award, supported by BD Diagnostic Systems, for a career of outstanding research in infectious diseases that has profoundly shaped the practice of clinical microbiology. At the ASM General Meeting, he will deliver the Division C Lecture, "Bloodstream Infections and the Essential Link between Infectious Disease Physicians and Clinical Microbiologists."

In addition to a distinguished career as a teacher, laboratory director, consultant, and administrator, Weinstein is the first author of more than 15 landmark articles on comparative methods for the laboratory detection of bacterial and fungal infections in the blood. His publications on the clinical significance and appropriate interpretation of positive blood cultures are also classic, and invaluable, resources. He has made vital contributions to clinical decision-making in other areas of infectious disease medicine, in studies comparing laboratory measurements of bactericidal activity and therapeutic success in treating infective endocarditis and osteomyelitis, and in research on the clinical benefits of testing for Clostridium difficile toxin in hospitalized patients with diarrhea.

He is known nationally for his expertise, as well, through committee service and advisory roles for ASM's American Board of Medical Microbiology, the National Committee on Clinical Laboratory Standards, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health and Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.

A Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, the American College of Physici
