The award is given to an ASCP Fellow who has led a distinguished career in pathology and laboratory medicine, embracing education, research, and administration, as well as service to organized pathology.
Vogler, a professor of pathology and pediatrics, also is an ex-officio member of the School of Medicine Graduate Programs Advisory Council and past director of the Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency Training Program. She has mentored many graduate students and medical students.
A longtime leader in the field of graduate medical education, she has been a dynamic force behind the ASCP Resident Review Course, which prepares pathology residents for the Board examination.
In 2003, Vogler called an administrator at ASCP to request that a lecture about pediatric pathology be added to the Resident Review Course. The lecture was not only added, but Vogler was invited to teach it, which she has done ever since. Since 2009, she has also served as a director of the program.
Vogler has received numerous awards for outstanding teaching, including the 2007, 2008, and 2012 Saint Louis University School of Medicine Distinguished Teacher Award, and the Saint Louis University School of Medicine Golden Apple Award in 2006, 2007, and 2008.
A prolific author and editor, Vogler serves on the editorial boards of Perspectives in Pediatric Pathology and Advances in Anatomic Pathology, has written numerous articles for peer-reviewed publications and has been an ad hoc reviewer for numerous professional journals.
