Matthew Hotopf wins prestigious Katon Research Award

Professor Matthew Hotopf, Director of the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), has won the prestigious 2016 Katon Research Award from the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM).

The Katon Research Award honours an individual currently studying psychopathology in the medically ill, and is intended to recognize exceptional research and clinical work in the field.

As part of the Award, Professor Hotopf will give a 45-minute lecture at the APM’s annual scientific meeting in November, held in Austin, Texas, United States.

Professor Hotopf said: “It is a great honour to receive the Wayne Katon Research Award from the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine.   Wayne Katon was a great inspiration to my work. The Academy’s work to advance healthcare for people with both psychiatric and general medical conditions is something that I am also passionate about, and I look forward to attending what will no doubt be a fascinating meeting in Austin later this year.”

The Katon Research Award is named in the memory of Wayne J. Katon, MD, FAPM, a dedicated clinical researcher and pioneer in collaborative care who passed away March 1, 2015.  For more information and previous winners, see
