KY Cha Award Winner

Eli Adashi, M.D. has spent his lifetime promoting and developing our knowledge of basic processes in the ovary. He has an honorary doctorate degree from Poznan University and the University of Ottawa, an honorary professorship from Shandong University, and a Master's Degree from Brown University. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and was named President d'Honneur à titre Etranger by the Societé Francaise de Gynécologie.  He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine and the Association of American Physicians, as well as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Over time, his work has transitioned to that of an administrator during which he has authored multiple philosophical papers. 

For the past 10 years, Dr. Adashi has been nominated for the ASRM Distinguished Researcher Award. However ASRM wanted to honor his great achievements over the span of his career--to celebrate his life's achievements--and so the ASRM Lifetime Achievement Award was created. Despite the ASRM Lifetime Achievement Award being instituted with Dr. Adashi in mind, it was not a given that he would win it. However, within minutes of the call for nominations posting, Dr. Adashi was nominated!   

ASRM is proud to award Dr. Eli Adashi the first ASRM Lifetime Achievement Award.
