Lama, Huang, and Cooke receive national recognition.


Two of our faculty were recognized at this year’s American Society of Clinical Investigation meeting in Chicago.  Vibha Lama was inducted into ASCI this year, joining three other division faculty who are ASCI members.  Steven Huang was the recipient of one of the ASCI Council's 2013 Young Physician-Scientist Awards. Also inducted into ASCI at this year’s meeting was Borna Mehrad, who was a past fellow in our Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellowship program and is currently a Professor of Medicine at the University of Virginia. Colin Cooke was named the recipient of the 2013 BS/HSR Early Career Achievement Award from the American Thoracic Society, which was presented at this year’s ATS International Conference in Philadelphia.   Colin is the second member of our division to win this award, as Jack Iwashyna was the recipient of this very same award in 2011.
