Dr. Cagle received the award, the CAP's highest honor, in recognition for his outstanding contributions as editor of the College's award-winning peer-reviewed journal— Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine.  He was also recognized with the CAP Distinguished Patient Care Award for serving as co-chair in the development of the CAP lung cancer biomarker evidence-based guideline.  The recommendations mark a significant breakthrough in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and were a joint project with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer and the Association for Molecular Pathology.

"I am deeply humbled and honored to be recognized by the College of American Pathologists, an organization dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in laboratory medicine," said Dr. Cagle.  "It is a distinct privilege to accept the Pathologist of the Year award and the Distinguished Patient Care award on behalf of my esteemed colleagues at the CAP."

With his undergraduate degree in biology from Lambuth College in Jackson, Tenn., Dr. Cagle earned his medical degree with a pathology fellowship from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis. Following pathology residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where he was appointed chief resident in year four, Dr. Cagle completed a post-doctoral fellowship in pulmonary research at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
