JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas -- A scientist with the 59th Medical Wing's Clinical Research Division recently earned the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science's Scientific Researcher of the Year Award for 2015.

David McGlasson, a clinical research scientist, earned the award for his manuscript, "Measuring Dabigatran with the Dilute Russell Viper Venom Confirm Assay in an Anticoagulation Clinic Population." 

The award recognizes and encourages the development of scientific research in the field of clinical laboratory science through test development, quality assurance, quality control program development and instrument development, according to the ASCLS website.

To complete the research protocol, McGlasson analyzed blood samples from 102 research subjects using five different methods accomplishing over 3,000 laboratory procedures.

Closing in on 30 years with the Wilford Hall CRD, McGlasson has made many significant contributions to the scientific community. He has published 166 abstracts, 76 manuscripts, seven book chapters, three patents and one book. McGlasson has also presented more than 200 lectures at local, state, national and international levels.

"Our research is driven by the needs of our patient population, both military and civilian. Our goal as a research team is to be able to find the answers that could potentially help doctors determine the best treatment plan for patients," McGlasson said.

Since 2002, McGlasson has earned this scientific research award eight times. 

This award validates the research we accomplished here at our facility. It is very satisfying to be recognized for something we worked so hard for, he said.
