The American Biological Safety Association recently named Jeffrey Adamovicz, PhD, registered biosafety professional and associate professor of veterinary pathobiology at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, the recipient of the 2022 Hashimoto Recognition Award. The association bestowed the award on Adamovicz for his outstanding service on the ABSA Credentialing Maintenance Board, a committee that he has served for five years.
Adamovicz has been a member of the ABSA for 12 years and has been a registered biosafety professional in ABSA International, which is one of the professional credentials in biosafety that ABSA awards. His years of dedication and volunteerism to the organization paved the way for Adamovicz to receive this award. “I believe this award was given to recognize my continuing contributions and improvements to the process of validating membership credit points and continuing education for ABSA International’s biosafety professionals,” Adamovicz said.
According to the ABSA International website, the Hashimoto Recognition Award was created in honor of Robert Hashimoto, MS, RBP, CBSP, to recognize service to ABSA committees. Hashimoto had a long history of service and leadership withing the ABSA, as well as during his 26-year career as a biosafety officer in the San Francisco Bay area.
“I’m very happy to be recognized in a large international organization that is run almost entirely by volunteers. It was an honor to be nominated and a surprise to receive this award,” said Adamovicz.
