The award recognizes an established investigator in the prime of his/her career who has made an outstanding contribution to further understanding of the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis and/or for the development of treatment strategies for its prevention through basic and clinical research efforts.

The award honors the memory of Jeffery M. Hoeg, chief of the Section of Cell Biology within the Molecular Branch of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. He was an extraordinary research scientist and physician who, in the prime of his career, was working on the field of lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis. Dr. Hoeg died in July 1998 after a courageous battle with cancer.
