The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Foundation has awarded a three-year, $240,000 Faculty Development Award to Cosby Stone Jr., MD, MPH, instructor in Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The award is specifically in support of Stone’s ongoing research on cephalosporin antibiotic allergy. He is one of four researchers who received faculty development awards Feb. 26 at the AAAAI virtual annual meeting.
“I am honored to accept this award and am eagerly looking forward to advancing our field’s knowledge of the natural history, risk factors and risk-stratified management for cephalosporin allergy,” Stone said in a brief videotaped statement that aired during the awards presentation.
Stone joined Vanderbilt faculty in 2019, following fellowship training in allergy and immunology at VUMC.
VUMC’s sole other recipient of the AAAAI Foundation’s Faculty Development Award is Stokes Peebles, Jr., MD, professor Medicine, who received the award in 2001 for his work on the contribution of cyclooxygenase products to allergic diseases.
