Guiterazz Uriach prize awarded to Prof. José Manuel Gutiérrez García, Barcelona

On 28 November 2007, Professor José Manuel Gutiérrez Garcia of the Department of Philosophy and member of the Centre for the History of Science (CEHIC) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, received the 2007 History of Medicine Award from the Uriach Foundation. The title of his winning paper was 'L'impacte del laboratori en la renovació de la veterinària espanyola: el cas de Joaquim Ravetllat i Estech (1871-1923)' [The impact of the laboratory on the renovation of Spanish veterinary medicine: the case of Joaquim Ravetllat i Estech (1871-1923)]. The History of Medicine Award is an international prize which has been awarded yearly since 1970 and is considered one of the most prestigious awards related to the history of health sciences. Winners receive €1,500 and the publication of their article in the journal Medicina e Historia. It is for the first time in almost 40 years that the Uriach Foundation awards a prize to a work carried out in the field of veterinary medicine. Prof. Gutiérrez was unanimously chosen by the jury as this year's winner.

The WAHVM Board cordially congratulates our colleague Prof. Gutiérrez with winning this award, which marks a milestone for the history of veterinary medicine. José Manuel Gutiérrez is member of the board of both the Catalan and the Spanish Veterinary History Association. He is a very active veterinary historian and he has attended several of our international meetings. He also participates in history and philosophy courses organized by the Veterinary Faculty and University of Barcelona. We hope that this award will further stimulate his career in veterinary history.
