Date:5/21/2012

Ellen Jo Baron, Ph.D., D(ABMM), Professor Emerita, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, has been honored with the 2012 ASM Founders Distinguished Service Award for her years of volunteer service to ASM. "For as long as I can recall during my career in clinical microbiology, Baron has been the heart and soul of my profession," says Wm. Michael Dunne, Ph.D., Executive Director of Research and Development, North America, for bioMrieux, Inc., Durham, NC.

Baron holds a Ph.D. in Medical Microbiology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Microbiology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA and the Wadsworth Veterans Affairs Medical Center. At Stanford, Baron served as Director of the Clinical Microbiology and Clinical Virology Laboratories and Associate Chair of Pathology for Faculty Development and Diversity in the School of Medicine. Baron is currently Director of Medical Affairs for Cepheid, a high-technology molecular diagnostics company in Sunnyvale, California, where she writes the On-Demand Newsletter and works on clinical trials, new test development, and publications involving Cepheid products. She serves as an internal and external educator about the technology and its impact on patient care.

Baron's numerous contributions to ASM encompass a vast variety of programs. "Baron is one of those unsung treasures of ASM; she has worked diligently for the society, both locally and nationally, for over 35 years," describes nominator Fred Tenover of Cepheid. Baron has served as Chair of ASM's largest scientific division, Division C (Clinical Microbiology), and is now the Divisional Representative for Group 1. In addition, she is a Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Microbiology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology. She has also been involved at the branch level, has served as a volume editor for four editions of the Manual of Clinical Microbiology,
