Ahmet Baschat, M.D., director of the Center for Fetal Therapy and professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, has been named recipient of the 2014 Haackert Gold Medal, an annual award for lifetime achievements in prenatal medicine.

The award was created by the Drs. Günther and Anemarie Haackert Foundation in Germany. The awardee is selected by an international scientific committee that includes members of the German Society of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, prior recipients and international experts in prenatal medicine. The criteria are based on consistent scientific and educational contributions with measurable impact on prenatal medicine.

Baschat’s areas of clinical expertise include prenatal treatment of intrauterine growth restriction and fetal interventions for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, as well as other complications of twin pregnancies.  His research interests include interventions and management techniques for fetal growth restriction and placental insufficiency. He has also done extensive research on the use of high resolution prenatal ultrasound techniques, including Doppler and fetal echocardiography, to predict and detect fetal complications.

Baschat will receive his award on Oct. 10 at the 60th Congress of the German Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Munich.

May 7, 2014, marks the 125th anniversary of the opening of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Our benefactor, Mr. Johns Hopkins, had a vision to unite a hospital and a medical school in a previously unimagined way. He sought to inspire collaboration that would revolutionize medicine through teaching, research and patient care. Together, we all carry out that vision and continue his legacy. Celebrate The Johns Hopkins Hospital's anniversary by sharing your wishes and memories in the comments section below.
