A major pioneer in IR research since 1990, Michael D. Dake, MD, has been named the recipient of the 2011 SIR Foundation Leaders in Innovation Award.

After receiving his undergraduate degree at Harvard College, Dr. Dake graduated from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where he completed an intern-ship, and was a resident and chief resident in internal medicine. He next received his fellowship training in pul-monary disease and completed his residency and chief residency in radiology at University of California San Francisco. He went on to complete subspecialty training in vascular and interventional radiology under the men-torship of Ernest J. Ring, MD, FSIR.

After working for several years helping to develop the fledging Miami Vascular Institute under Barry T. Katzen, MD, FSIR, Dr. Dake returned to California in 1990 to assume the positions of section chief of cardio-vascular and interventional radiology at Stanford Uni-versity School of Medicine and co-director of the Cath-eterization and Angiography Laboratories at Stanford University Hospital. Over the next 15 years at Stanford, he directed a team of interventionalists, who collaborat-ed with specialists in other disciplines to achieve a num-ber of noteworthy accomplishments.

In January 2005, Dr. Dake assumed the role of chair-man of the department of radiology and the Harrison Distinguished Medical Teaching Professor of Radiology at the University of Virginia Health System. At this time, he developed a plan to comprehensively renovate the radiology department within the University of Virginia Hospital. Under his mentorship and direction, multiple diagnostic radiology residents have been awarded com-petitive research grants from prestigious societies, and four of his trainees have recieved SIR Foundation’s Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award. In fall 2008, Dr. Dake returned to Stanford where he has been profes-sor of cardiothoracic surgery and medical director of the Catheterization and Angiography Laboratories at Stan-ford Medical Center.

Dr. Dake has been very active in professional soci-

ety leadership positions throughout his career, including the American College of Radiology, Society for Vascu-lar Surgery and American Board of Radiology. He has served in numerous SIR leadership positions, including serving as a member of the Ethics, Technology Assess-ment and Biliary Reporting Committees and chairing the Society’s Technology Assessment Subcommittee for the Study of Endovascular Grafting. He has also served as a reviewer for a wide range of scholarly journals and as an associate editor for the Journal of Vascular and Interven-tional Radiology (JVIR).
