The National Institutes of Health Center for Scientific Review has named Alice M. Clark, the University of Mississippi’s chief research officer, the 2010 winner of its top honor for extraordinary commitment to peer review. Clark, vice chancellor for research and sponsored programs and F.A.P. Barnard Distinguished Professor of Pharmacognosy, will receive the Marcy Speer Outstanding Reviewer Award, which highlights the vital contributions of CSR reviewers who evaluate NIH grant applications.
During Clark’s 20 years of service, she has participated in 63 reviews, including those as a regular reviewer and chair for the AIDS and Related Research Study Section and the Drug Discovery and Mechanisms of Antimicrobial Resistance Study Section. She was also a regular member of the Bio-Organic and Natural Products Chemistry Study Section and has served on multiple special emphasis panels.
Clark will receive her award in early 2011 in Bethesda, Md.
