HAI CLARK AWARD

This award is named in honor of Christopher Clark, MD, a neurologist and Alzheimer’s disease researcher who passed away in January 2012. Chris was an inspiration to the Alzheimer’s field and this award honors his memory by supporting the continuing advancement of the field.

Dr. Clark’s career was devoted to understanding Alzheimer’s disease, developing diagnostically specific markers and identifying and evaluating new therapeutic treatments, with the goals of reducing the stigma of disease and empowering individuals and their families. He held various positions including Director of Duke University Memory Disorders Clinic, Director of the Clinical Core of the University of Pennsylvania Alzheimer’s Disease Center (ADC), Memory Disorders Clinic, and as Medical Director for Avid Radiopharmaceuticals. While at Avid, he led the seminal multicenter study demonstrating the relationship between PET amyloid imaging and brain neuritic plaque pathology.

 

Chris is remembered for his passion for science, his love for his patients, and his deep commitment to open and friendly collaboration. All who knew him have been touched by his unwavering generosity and kindness.

Every first author and presenter is eligible for consideration for the Christopher Clark Award (unless choosing to opt-out). The winner of the award will receive a plaque and a monetary award to be used for an educational or training opportunity in the field of human amyloid imaging. The HAI’s Program Committee will evaluate all submissions against the overall scientific merit and relevance to the field of human amyloid imaging.

Previous HAI Christopher Clark Award winners are:

Milos Ikonomovic (2017), Christopher Rowe and Clifford Jack (2016), Gil Rabinovici (2015) and Victor Villemagne (2014).
