Jon Epstein, MD, of Penn, wins Outstanding Investigator Award

Jon Epstein, MD, Professor of Medicine and cardiovascular researcher at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, has been selected as this year's winner of the American Federation for Medical Research's Outstanding Investigator Award, the organization's top honor for medical investigation. The award was given out at the Clinical Research 2006 Annual Meeting, held March 16-18, in Washington, DC.

The Outstanding Investigator Award is presented annually to an outstanding investigator age 45 or younger in recognition of excellence in biomedical research.

Epstein's research interest, along with the Epstein laboratory at PENN, is in molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular development, and the implications of these mechanisms for understanding human disease. His lab works with transgenic and knockout mouse models.

Epstein, who is also a board certified cardiologist, is receiving a $5,000 award from the AFMR, dedicated to fostering medical research and support programs aimed at developing the careers of physician scientists.
