2016 CERSI Scholars Annouced!

I’ve written in previous posts about my involvement with the Georgetown University Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI). This spring, MHRI agreed to co-sponsor a “CERSI Scholars” program, to engage early career researchers and help to train them in regulatory science. Last week, we awarded 10 CERSI Scholars!

The CERSI Scholars program is a joint endeavor of MedStar Health Research Institute and Georgetown University Medical Center. Awards were given to early career investigators who are committed to public health and are actively pursuing research, education, or training in regulatory science.

It’s so great to see the names of the MedStar Health associates as recipients of 5 awards; these individuals are working in various ways to improve public health through regulatory science research efforts.

  • Zach Hettinger, MD, MS, National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare, MedStar Health
  • Jennifer Purks, Clinical Trials Manager, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital / Huntington Disease Care, Education, and Research Center, GUMC
  • Erica Savage, Project Manager, National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare, MedStar Health
  • Rebecca Torguson, Director, MedStar Cardiovascular Research Network, MedStar Health
You can read about all 10 scholars on the CERSI website. Congratulations to the recipients! 

If you’re interested in learning more about the CERSI Scholars program, or regulatory science in general, feel free to contact Erin Wilhelm (eew6@georgetown.edu) who serves as the Executive Director of the program. Erin will be happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have.
