On September 29, 1989 Dr. Robert Dougherty, D.V.M., M.S., received the fourth Jakob Markowitz Award for his significant contributions to curative medicine through basic surgical research. This award is presented by the Academy of Surgical Research. One of the unique things about the Academy of Surgical Research is that it brings together outstanding veterinarians, medical doctors, and oral surgeons. Dr. Dougherty received this award with Dr. Thomas E. Starzl, the medical doctor who performed the first liver transplant.
