Two faculty from the Department of Medicine have received 2019 ASCI Young Physician-Scientist Awards from the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

Gentzon Hall, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine (Nephrology), and Brent Hanks, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine (Medical Oncology) and pharmacology and cancer biology, are among 35 "outstanding physician-scientists" nationally to be recognized.

“These awards are a wonderful recognition of what Dr. Hall and Dr. Hanks have accomplished through their outstanding research,” said Kathleen Cooney, MD, Chair of the Department of Medicine. “Both physicians completed their training at Duke, and this honor illustrates the strategic investment the Department of Medicine and School of Medicine have made in supporting young physician-scientists.”

Nominees were required to have received their first faculty appointment within the last five years and be currently funded by an NIH K or equivalent career-development award (in or outside the United States).
