New knowledge about the pathophysiology and treatment of cutaneous disease is crucial for the future of our specialty. In this session, talented resident and fellow investigator finalists for the Everett C. Fox Memorial Award will present their clinical and basic science research discoveries. The founder of the Award, Dr. Fox, was a leading dermatologist in Dallas, Texas, and was active at Baylor and UT Southwestern. He was born in Italy, Texas, in 1902 and graduated from Baylor University College (BUCM) of Medicine in 1928. After specialty training in New York, he returned to Dallas where he practiced until he retired in 1975. He taught clinical dermatology and syphilology at BUCM from 1935 until 1943 and subsequently at UT Southwestern. He was a wonderful teacher and clinician, respected by patients and colleagues alike, and a man of great principle who insisted on punctuality. The Academy is grateful to Dr. Fox for providing the endowment that allows for this Award and encourages research by dermatology residents and fellows. The faculty speakers listed above will serve as the examining and judging panel for the presentations and the Award.
