The pioneering research of Michael F. Holick, Ph.D,MD has earned him the 2007 Linus Pauling Functional Medicine Award. Dr. Holick received the award May 24th while attending the 14th International Symposium on Functional Medicine in Tucson, Arizona, sponsored by The Institute for Functional Medicine, located in Gig Harbor, WA.
The Linus Pauling Award is given for research that is changing the thinking about a biomedical problem. Linus Pauling is the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes - for chemistry (1954) and for peace (1962). His colleagues often acknowledged Dr. Pauling as the most influential chemist since Lavosier, the 18th Century founder of the modern science of chemistry.
