John N. Clore, M.D., will be honored by the Virginia Chapter of the American College of Physicians with its 2012 Laureate Award at the chapter’s annual meeting in March.
Each year, the ACP’s Virginia Chapter presents a single Laureate Award, honoring a fellow or master of the ACP who has demonstrated an abiding commitment to excellence in medical care, education or research as well as service to their community, their Chapter and the American College of Physicians.
Clore, whose research and clinical interests are in the field of diabetes, is also associate vice-president for clinical research and director of the VCU Center for Clinical and Translational Research. He led VCU’s successful application to join the nationwide consortium of research institutions working to turn laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients. The $20 million grant from the National Institutes of Health — the largest federal award in the university’s history — made VCU the only academic health center in Virginia to be included in the national network.
Clore is also an accomplished teacher, having received the medical school’s Distinguished Mentor Award in 2008 for his significant contributions to the career development of others.
