Chi Elected to American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI)
Durham, N.C. (December 2010) – Jen-Tsan Ashley Chi, MD, PhD, an assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology and the IGSP’s Center for Applied Genomics and Technology, is one of over 60 new members elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) for 2011.
The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) was established in 1908 and is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected medical honor societies.
The ASCI comprises more than 2,800 physician-scientists from all medical specialties elected to the Society for their outstanding records of scholarly achievement in biomedical research. The ASCI represents active physician-scientists who are at the bedside, at the research bench, and at the blackboard. Many of its senior members are widely recognized leaders in academic medicine.
The ASCI is dedicated to the advancement of research that extends our understanding and improves the treatment of human diseases, and members are committed to mentoring future generations of physician-scientists. The ASCI considers the nominations of several hundred physician-scientists from the United States and abroad each year and elects up to 80 new members each year for their significant research accomplishments. Because members must be 45 years of age or younger at the time of their election, membership reflects accomplishments by its members relatively early in their careers.
Chi will be recognized at the ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting in Chicago on Friday, April 15, 2010.
