Methodius Tuuli, MD, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and colleagues have been recognized with a 2017 Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award from the Clinical Research Forum.

Their publication, a randomized trial comparing skin antiseptic agents at cesarean delivery, found lower risk and infection rates when using chlorhexidine-alcohol instead of the traditional iodine-alcohol in cesarean deliveries. The findings were published in The New England Journal of Medicine in February 2016.
