E. Donnall Thomas Prize Awarded To Liver Researcher From Thailand

E. Donnall Thomas Prize Awarded

To Liver Researcher From Thailand

Karn Wijarnpreecha, MD, accepts the 2018 E. Donnall Thomas Research Day Outstanding Research Presentation Award from Anne M. Gadomski,  director, Research Institute.

COOPERSTOWN – Dr. Karn Wijarnpreecha, who is researching liver disease, has been awarded the E. Donnall Thomas Outstanding Research Day Presentation Award, named in honor the former Bassett physician who won the Nobel Prize.

Wijarnpreecha, who is completing his medical training at Bassett, is investigating possible links between nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease, scarring of the liver and low muscle mass, and whether any link is consistent across ethnicities.  If so, “interventions to strengthen muscle mass may reduce the burden of NAFLD and advanced fibrosis,” the researcher said.

COOPERSTOWN – State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, delivered $1 million needed for a $5.8 million renovation of Doubleday Field, long considered the Birthplace of Baseball, which marks its 100th birthday next year.

The grant Seward announced today is from the State & Municipal Facilities Program.  The Village of Cooperstown has applied for another $3 million – earlier reports had it at $5 million – from the Empire State Development Corp., and Mayor Ellen Tillapaugh Kuch has said she hopes to hear positive news, perhaps as soon as the next few days.

That would give the village $4 million toward the project, and other sources are being sought to make up the $1.8 million.  Tillapaugh has also said she has a priority list, so work can begin in time to celebrate the 100th anniversary in 2020.
