CWRU MD-PhD student and CTSC TL1 Scholar Uriel Kim wins prestigious Clinical and Translational Science Award

April 15, 2020 -- Uriel Kim, an MD-PhD candidate in the CWRU School of Medicine Clinical Translational Science Training Program (CTSTP) and CTSC TL1 Scholar has been named the winner of the highly competitive 2020 "Outstanding Trainee: Predoctoral Scholar Award" by the Association for Clinical and Translational Science. Uriel's award includes an honorarium and his highlight video was featured as part of the virtual Translational Science 2020 joint annual meeting of the Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR), the Clinical Research Forum, and the PhRMA Foundation.  

Uriel's dissertation research, under the mentorship of Dr. Johnie Rose, focuses on understanding the impact of the Affordable Care Act’s impact on low-income Americans. His research has shown that the Affordable Care Act, especially through Medicaid Expansion, has substantially narrowed disparities in not only general health services outcomes, but also disease-specific outcomes in cancer.

Uriel's remarkable career is an inspiration to us and should be showcased as an example to all trainees and junior faculty! Congratulations, Uriel!
