This award honors F. Clarke Fraser, one of the founding members of the Teratology Society, for his many contributions to the field of developmental toxicology. The award is presented during the annual meeting of the Teratology Society.
“I feel incredibly honored to have received the F. Clark Fraser New Investigator Award, especially among such talented members of our Society,” said Dr. Obican, who also serves as a Teratology Society Councilor. “I hope, in my career, to be able to, in some way, live up to the incredibly high standard of the namesake of the award.”
Dr. Obican provided a preview of “The Risk of a Broken Heart,” the presentation she will give during the Teratology Society 55th Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 28 at 1:30pm. “Over the last two years I have been interested in melding together my clinical and research work. I will focus on early diagnosis of congenital heart anomalies and the evaluation of fetal heart function in intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy,” she said.
