The F. Stephen Vogel Award was established by contributions to a fund created by his family and friends. It is to be awarded in recognition of an outstanding paper by a resident or fellow published in one of the Academy journals, Modern Pathology or Laboratory Investigation, during the twelve months preceding the application deadline.

The awardee must:

(1) be a USCAP member, in good standing, at least one year prior to receiving the award;

(2) possess an MD, or international equivalent, degree; and

(3) be a pathologist-in-training (resident or fellow) in a program accredited for training at the time the scientific investigation on which the article is based was initiated and substantially completed. Applicants should be the first author or submit documentation of a significant contribution to the paper.

On papers with multiple authors, only one author is eligible, and only one paper per author may be submitted. The prize will consist of a check for $1,000 and a certificate. Applicants should complete the application form online and electronically submit the form along with a PDF reprint (or preprint) of their manuscript and a PDF of the signed VERIFICATION OF ELIGIBILITY FORM, AVAILABLE HERE. The Vogel Award Committee will select the awardee.

Funds for travel are not included and the awardee does not have to present at the meeting.

Corey Post, MD, MS

2024 F. Stephen Vogel Award

Corey Post is currently a fourth-year house officer in the AP/CP pathology residency program at Michigan Medicine, where he is privileged to serve as co-chief resident. His professional career has largely been characterized by his interests in the intersections of molecular biology, bioinformatics, and medical education. Corey initially pursued a BS in biochemistry at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he stayed to complete an MS in bioinformatics. During this time, he participated as a team member developing the Knowledge Engine for Genomics (KnowEnG), which was a part of the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. This work exposed him to the utility of applying increasingly available research datasets to solve clinical problems in a rapidly changing medical field, and fostered a desire to become an active participant in this area.

Corey received his MD from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. As a medical student he developed an interest in medical education while serving on the medical school curriculum committee, and participated in curricular development as the school transitioned its pre-clinical curriculum from passive lectures to active learning and flipped classroom modalities. He also had the opportunity to appreciate the important role for pathologists in both medical education and patient care, especially their ability to translate the basic sciences to the clinical care.

Now a pathology resident, Corey has continued to explore these interests. He has worked closely with the pathology informatics division on research projects, such as the application of artificial intelligence to image analysis, as well as in discussions and planning of workflows required for implementation of digital pathology in clinical practice. He completed the Committee of Medical Educators in Training (CoMET) fellowship program, and helped to develop a new, interactive curriculum for medical students taking the pathology elective.

Corey will be staying at Michigan Medicine for fellowship training in hematopathology and molecular and genetic pathology. Both fields make use of cutting-edge technologies and analysis of large data sets to derive diagnoses, determine prognosis, and treatment response. He hopes to continue to apply his skill sets in these areas.
