Congratulations to Olivia Dong, PhD, current postdoctoral fellow funded by the Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine T32 grant, for winning first place in the American College of Cardiology 2021 Young Investigator Awards in Outcomes Research.

The American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Awards competition encourages and recognizes young scientific investigators of promise, upon whom progress in the field of cardiology is dependent. The awards were presented during the ACC Convocation Ceremony on May 17, 2021 during the ACC’s 70th Annual Scientific Session Together, taking place virtually.

To be considered for a Young Investigator Award, candidates submitted an abstract summarizing any problem relating to cardiovascular disease, whether in etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis or therapy. Finalists were selected in each of the three award categories and invited to attend the Scientific Session to present their work during the Young Investigator Awards Competition.
