Dr. Christopher Brace, Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology and Director of the Tumor Ablation Laboratory, was senior author of a paper that was recently named a Distinguished Laboratory Investigation of 2017 by the editors of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR). The paper, titled “Potential Mechanisms of Vascular Thrombosis after Microwave Ablation in an in Vivo Liver”, was authored by Dr. Jason Chiang, who earned his PhD under the supervision of Dr. Brace and is now a radiology resident at University of California – Los Angeles.

“The paper was a collaborative and multidisciplinary effort – a great example of how the UW Madison environment makes high quality research possible,” Dr. Brace said, “I’m really proud of Jason, the co-authors and everyone in the ablation lab that helped on this work.”

The award is supported by the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation, “as an acknowledgement of the essential research that is conducted in interventional radiology and published within JVIR.” The award-winning paper can be viewed at www.jvir.org/article/S1051-0443(17)30371-8/abstract
