From the Director

Congratulations to all of our poster presenters at the virtual Resident Research Day 2020 and to our Califf Medicine Resident Research Award presenters Drs. Adrian Clark-Randall (mentors Drs. David Halpern and Kevin Shah), Qasim Hussaini (mentor Dr. Tony Sung) and Becca Lumsden (mentor Dr. Neha Pagidipati). Such impressive work!  

Also congratulations to our 2020 poster award winners Drs. Akash Goyal, Chester Kao, Eric Powers and Cindy Pabon! If you haven’t had a chance to check out all the amazing work, please take a few minutes to peruse the poster gallery (view posters and listen to resident-narrated presentations). Many thanks to Dr. Murat Arcasoy for overseeing our resident research mission and to Elizabeth McCamic and Anton Zuiker for organizing the event. 

Kudos
Kudos this week go to Steve Pappas and Godefroy Chery for their awesome SAR talks and to Vinay Choksi for a great Chair’s Conference. Caroline Sloan also sends kudos to Amanda, Jared and Lara for their amazing work and to Joe Lerman for taking over leadership at DRH during his month as ACR.
