Norman Kubasik Award

Norman P. Kubasik Lectureship Award
The Kubasik Lectureship Award was instituted in 1991 by the AACC Upstate New York Section in memory of Dr Norman P. Kubasik, Director of Chemistry at the Genesee Hospital in Rochester, NY. The award is presented annually at the fall meeting to an individual who exemplifies Dr Kubasik's interest in education, in teaching and in supporting young technologists and investigators, or to someone with a reputation as an outstanding scientist in a discipline related to clinical chemistry. The award consists of an honorarium ($500), a clock, and a plaque.

Norman P. Kubasik, PhD (1942-1991)

Norman Kubasik attended Rochester Institute of Technology, received his Bachelor of Science Degree from State University College of Fredonia (1965), and received his Doctorate in Biochemistry (1970) from SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse. Norm was the Director of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Services at Genesee Hospital, Rochester, up to the time of his death early in 1991. He was affiliated with many associations and colleges including being the Chairman of the Rochester Hospital Association of Clinical Chemists, an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Professor of Clinical Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology. In addition to his many affiliations he received the Somogyi-Sendroy Award for distinguished contributions in 1989 from the Upstate NY AACC. His laboratory interests focused primarily on endocrinology and immunoassay and he traveled widely as a consultant for diagnostic products at many universities and hospitals world-wide.
