This new award was established in 2022 to recognize outstanding basic research by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Dr. Claude Migeon (1923-2018) served as the director of pediatric endocrinology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine from 1961 to 1994. His early focus on steroid metabolism established the norms of adrenal function in infancy and childhood. He also discovered the genetic cause of some endocrine disorders. Dr. Barbara Migeon, who sadly passed away in January, is a professor of genetic medicine and pediatrics who is known for pioneering work on the mechanisms and consequences of X-chromosome inactivation in females and its relevance to human disease, and as the founding director of the PhD program in Human Genetics. Both Drs. Migeon have been devoted mentors of many trainees throughout their careers, and with this award we honor their contributions as both scientists and mentors.
