Southern Society for Clinical Investigation taps six more UofL faculty as members


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Six members of the University of Louisville Department of Medicine have been accepted for membership in the prestigious Southern Society for Clinical Investigation, a regional academic society dedicated to the advancement of medical research.

    That brings the total membership from the University of Louisville to 24, making the UofL contingent the fastest-growing group in the SSCI.

    The SSCI supports the development of young investigators and students. The group also is committed to encouraging students, residents and fellows to enter academic medicine and to support junior faculty success in clinical investigation.

    “The SSCI is an honorary society that promotes scholarship, research, education and mentorship,” Dr. Jesse Roman, chair of the Department of Medicine, said. “The fact that our department now houses 24 SSCI members speaks loudly about the quality of our faculty and about their leadership role in academic medicine.”

    The latest group of new members includes:
