Wall of Scholarship dedication set for Tuesday, March 5

University of Iowa Health Care faculty, students, staff, volunteers, and the public are invited to attend the dedication of the UI Carver College of Medicine Wall of Scholarship from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in the Atrium of the Eckstein Medical Research Building (EMRB).

The college’s Wall of Scholarship was established to highlight biomedical research by acknowledging a distinct group of current UI Carver College of Medicine faculty members whose published research articles have made a significant impact on a particular field of science or medicine.

Plaques for 32 peer-reviewed research articles, for which 20 current UI Carver College of Medicine faculty members served as first or senior authors, will be displayed on the Wall of Scholarship.

The articles were selected for having been cited more than 1,000 times (as of Dec. 31, 2018) in subsequent published research articles, based on at least two of three recognized academic citation indices: Google Scholar, Scopus, and Web of Science.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please call 319-384-2859.


    • Dr. Joseph Zabner was the lead author, and Dr. Michael Welsh was the senior/corresponding author, for the paper, “Cellular and Molecular Barriers to Gene Transfer by a Cationic Lipid,” published in August 1995 in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

      Also, Dr. Ed Stone was the lead author, and Dr. Val Sheffield was the senior/corresponding author, for the paper, “Identification of a Gene That Causes Primary Open Angle Glaucoma,” published in January 1997 in the journal Science.

  1. Congratulations to Dr. Marsh, the only actively practicing surgeon listed!
    Great accomplishments by all.

  2. Don’t forget to recognize the residents, postdoctoral fellows, medical students, graduate students, research assistants and others that worked in these laboratories. Without their efforts, none of these achievements would have been possible. Science is, after all, a team effort.
