Fort Collins, Colo. - 5/3/07 - Dr. C. Wayne McIlwraith, professor in the department of clinical sciences in Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, was presented the Scholarship Impact Award,one of the establishment's top annual honors for research accomplishments.

Director of the Orthopedic Research Center and Barbara Cox Anthony University Endowed Chair, McIlwraith received $10,000 to support his human and veterinary orthopedic research in basic and clinical sciences.

"There are few veterinary scientists working in any area who have had a greater influence on their discipline," says Bill Farland, vice president for research at CSU.

Having joined Colorado's CVM in 1979 as an equine surgeon with a research focus in orthopedics, McIlwraith has served as director of the Equine Sciences Program and Orthopaedic Research Center, which has made the university the world's leading center for comparative orthopedic research. He led the veterinary profession in developing diagnostic and surgical arthroscopy techniques used for joint disease.
