The Awards recognize articles published in ATVB in 2008 that were submitted by new investigators and judged to be the most outstanding in the Atherosclerosis and Lipoproteins, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology sections of the journal. The three awards are named for Dr Daniel Steinberg, who devised a method to determine the site of degradation of the proteins and lipids of a lipoprotein, which led to the concept of selective uptake of cholesterol and apoprotein that characterizes the reverse cholesterol transport pathway; Dr Karl Link, who identified dicoumarol as the hemorrhagic factor in spoiled sweet clover hay, and then developed dicoumarol and warfarin as anticoagulant drugs; and Dr Werner Risau, who formulated key concepts for the regulation of angiogenesis, challenged the prevailing dogmas about angiogenic factors, and proposed the now accepted hypothesis that several growth factors act sequentially to mediate vasculogenesis, angiogenesis, and vascular remodeling.In the fourth year of the award, 650 papers were submitted for the Awards. Recipients of the awards are:Owen McCarty, PhD, Oregon Health & Science University, the 2009 recipient of the Karl Link New Investigator Award in Thrombosis, for his article “The Thrombin Mutant W215A/E217A Acts As A Platelet GPIb Antagonist” (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2008;28:329–334).
