John Higgins



Roy Malka from the Higgins Lab, has won the prize for best MGH Pathology poster from a resident or fellow this year for his abstract entitled “Patient-Specific Inference of Average Glucose from Glycated Hemoglobin: Toward Personalized Diabetic Monitoring with Precision Laboratory Medicine”. Congratulations, Roy!


Harsh Patel (from Higgins Lab) presented an abstract at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Clinical Chemistry, and the abstract was selected as an “NACB Distinguished Abstract.” Only 38 out of 903 abstracts received that award.


Congratulations to John Higgins, MD on being selected as a 2012 NIH Director’s New Innovator Award recipient! This Award is created "to support exceptionally creative new investigators who propose highly innovative projects that have the potential for unusually high impact".
