Matthew A. Mauro, MD, FSIR, the Ernest H. Wood Distinguished Professor of Radiology, Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, and chair of the department of radiology at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Medical Center, will receive the Society of Interventional Radiology's Gold Medal at SIR's 39th Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego.

The SIR Gold Medal, the Society's highest honor, is bestowed for distinguished and extraordinary service to SIR or to the discipline of interventional radiology.

Dr. Mauro has distinguished himself as a researcher, educator and leader in interventional radiology. He is the chair of the department of radiology and professor of surgery and biomedical engineering at the UNC School of Medicine and UNC Hospitals, where he has spent his entire academic career. He continues to supervise residents and fellows in vascular/interventional radiology and maintains an active clinical practice within the UNC Center for Heart and Vascular Care.

His special interests include interventional oncology, venous access, embolotherapy, the management of vascular malformations and stent grafts. He has contributed extensively to the scientific literature, in particular publishing research in dialysis access, venous intervention, stenting and the evolving field of interventional oncology.

Dr. Mauro received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College, Ithaca, N.Y. After completing fellowships in diagnostic and vascular radiology at UNC Chapel Hill and abdominal imaging and vascular interventional radiology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis, Mauro returned to UNC, where he began his career as the chief of the body CT division and the chief of the interventional radiology division. Dr. Mauro was one of two interventional radiologists at UNC, building the division from the ground up.
