Four physician-scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have been elected members of the American Society for Clinical Investigation in recognition of original, creative and independent investigations in the clinical or allied sciences of medicine. The new members — Opeolu M. Adeoye, MD; Ying (Maggie) Chen, MD; Kory Lavine, MD; and Julie K. Schwarz, MD — will be inducted April 8.
Dr. Adeoye, the BJC HealthCare Distinguished Professor of Emergency Medicine and head of the Department of Emergency Medicine, is a noted physician-scientist whose research is focused on improving acute treatment and long-term outcomes for patients with acute brain injuries, especially stroke. He has extensive clinical trial experience, including holding leadership positions in phase 2 and 3 clinical trials focused on optimizing treatments for ischemic stroke. His goal is to identify pathways that may contribute to stroke outcomes and response to treatment to develop new therapies for stroke.
