ical applications. The grant, one of the largest single grants from the National Institutes of Health in UAB history, established the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences at UAB, of which Guay-Woodford is the director.

At the national level, Guay-Woodford has served as president of the Society for Pediatric Research, a councilor to the International Pediatric Nephrology Association, and a member of Scientific Advisory Committees for the Polycystic Kidney Research Foundation, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and the National Institutes of Health. She also is a member of the American Society of Nephrology, American Society of Pediatric Nephrology, International Pediatric Nephrology Association, Society for Pediatric Research and American Pediatric Society.

Guay-Woodford graduated from the College of the Holy Cross summa cum laude and earned her M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School. She then completed pediatric training and a pediatric nephrology fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital.

Guay-Woodford is one of three recipients of the Lillian Jean Kaplan International Prize for Advancement in the Understanding of Polycystic Kidney Disease for 2009. The others are Dr. Friedhelm Hildebrandt from the University of Michigan and Dr. Corinne Antignac from Necker Hospital in Paris, France. The three will receive their award and $50,000 each at the World Congress of Nephrology May 25 in Milan, Italy.

"For the first time ever, the 2009 Lillian Jean Kaplan International Prize for Advancement in the Understanding of Polycystic Kidney Disease honors three (not two) world renowned kidney doctors - all of whom are pediatric nephrologists," said Dan Larson, PKD Foundation President and CEO. "The significance of the first testifies to Mr. Kaplan's incredible generosity, especially during a major recession, and the second - because all three passionately strive to save the most vulnerable, fragile and precious of the world's PKD patients."'/>"/>
