Wagner Medal

In honor of the contributions of Dr. J. Christopher Wagner to the understanding of mesothelioma, its cause, and goals for prevention, the International Mesothelioma Interest Group presents the Wagner Medal every two years to an individual who has made major original contributions to the understanding of mesothelioma, either in basic or applied research.  The Wagner Medal is the highest honor presented by the International Mesothelioma Interest Group to a leader in the field.

Nominations for the Wagner Medal may be submitted by the general iMig membership.

The iMig Service Award may be awarded every two years to an individual who has made significant and sustained contributions of service to the mission of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group and the mesothelioma community.
