Dr. Mary Horowitz Inducted into Association of American Physicians

May 22, 2013

Mary Horowitz, MD, MS, Robert A. Uihlein, Jr. Chair in Hematologic Research, professor of medicine and chief of the division of hematology and oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), was inducted into the Association of American Physicians (AAP) at the group’s annual meeting in Chicago.

The AAP is a nonprofit, professional organization founded in 1885 for “the advancement of scientific and practical medicine.” The goals of its members include the pursuit of medical knowledge, and the advancement through experimentation and discovery of basic and clinical science and their application to clinical medicine. Each year, individuals having attained excellence in achieving these goals, are recognized by nomination for membership by the Council of the Association.

Dr. Horowitz, who is the chief scientific director of the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research, studies the effectiveness of transplantation as a treatment for life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers. Her outcomes-oriented and translational research programs have been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 20 years and have been driving forces in the field.

In addition to leadership positions at MCW, she serves as Research Director for the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database of the C. W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program and Principal Investigator of the Data and Coordinating Center of the national Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network. Dr. Horowitz and colleagues received a $45 million grant National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute to fund the Clinical Trials Network, the largest federal grant ever awarded to MCW. She also serves as a member of numerous editorial boards and grant review panels.

A 1980 MCW alumna, Dr. Horowitz completed a fellowship in hematology/oncology and a residency in internal medicine, including a year as chief resident, in the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals Program. She also completed a Master of Science degree in biostatistics and clinical epidemiology at MCW’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
