Lucy Z. Kornblith, MD, FACS, of San Francisco, California, has been selected to receive the 2023 ACS George H. A. Clowes, MD, FACS, Memorial Career Development Award. Dr. Kornblith is an assistant professor of surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. Her awarded research project is titled “Post-Injury Platelet Biology: Mechanisms and Outcomes.”
Dr. Kornblith said she anticipates that her research will help to investigate post-injury hemorrhage for the purpose of improving outcomes in injured patients. The primary objectives of her study are improving the outcomes for patients with post-injury hemorrhage by conducting innovative translational studies of trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) that are informed by her clinical perspectives, and training in high-throughput RNA sequencing in injured populations.
The Clowes Award is offered through the generosity of The Clowes Fund, Inc., of Indianapolis, IN. Its purpose is to provide support for the research of a promising young surgical investigator. The award consists of a stipend of $45,000 for each of 5 years and is not renewable thereafter.
