Background & How to Contribute

For many in the SBUR, Dr. Donald Coffey's influence has been immense. Dr. Coffey was one of the founders and the second president of the SBUR. He inspired generations of translational scientists and physician-scientists to think, research and solve scientific problems across many disciplines in medicine. 

Inspired by generous lead gifts in honor of Dr. Coffey by past Presidents of the SBUR current SBUR leaders have established the Eula and Donald S. Coffey Innovative Research Award to continue his mission and passion for science. The award will be presented to the top rated innovative abstract at the SBUR annual meeting and will encourage more investigators with "out of the box" ideas to share their work at the meeting.  Many of us remember having chats with Dr. Coffey at the SBUR poster sessions -- science innovation was his passion and the award will encourage more of the best and brightest to come to our annual meeting. The award is in addition to the Society's Donald S. Coffey Lecture at the annual SBUR spring meeting.

In honor of Dr. Coffey and to celebrate his legacy, members are encouraged to contribute generously to the endowment supporting the Eula and Donald S. Coffey Innovative Research Award.
