Dr. Sabra Lewsey, assistant professor in the Division of Cardiology, recently received a Robert A. Winn Career Development Award from the Robert A. Winn Diversity in Clinical Trials Award Program established by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation.
The goal the award is to increase the diversity of patients enrolled in clinical trials, and ultimately to enhance the development of therapeutics for all populations. The program collaborates with communities to facilitate an approach to clinical and translational research that is community-informed, designed and conducted. It provides emerging investigators the sponsorship, support and tools they need to conduct clinical trials that will yield new treatments effective in all populations.
Dr. Lewsey will join the Unload Heart Failure clinical trial as part of the Mid-Atlantic Center for Cardiometabolic Health Equity and perform a sub-study with the help of this award.
