DOM Annual Research Day 2022

April 26, 2022

We would like to extend a special thank-you to our plenary/oral/poster presenters, judges, special guests, and volunteers who helped to make this year’s event possible. With the challenges faced over this last year due to COVID, a shift towards a completely virtual event would not have been possible without you! We truly appreciate the time and effort you gave to ensuring Research Day’s success.

 

Congratulations to the 2022 plenary presenters and oral presentation winners!

Neil R. Powe, MD, MPH, MBA

Dr. Powe’s major interests are in improving discovery, education and clinical practice in medicine, propelling academic organizations to function effectively and efficiently, enhancing scholarship and multidisciplinary collaboration, and developing future talent and leadership in the health professions. Dr. Powe’s work unites Medicine and Public Health with the goals of saving and improving quality of human lives.

He is a principal investigator of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention National CKD Surveillance System. In over 490 publications, he has studied early referral of CKD patients, patient-physician contact in dialysis care, cost-effectiveness of screening for proteinuria, race differences in cardiovascular procedure use among CKD patients, effect of treatment modalities on survival, outcomes of emergent vs standard hemodialysis for immigrants, outcomes of dialysis care by type of ownership and access to transplantation. Dr. Powe served as co-chair of the National Kidney Foundation – American Society of Nephrology Task Force on reassessing the inclusion of race in diagnosing kidney disease.

Dr. Powe is a member of the National Academy of Medicine, the American Society of Clinical Investigation, the Association of American Physicians, the American Society of Epidemiology, Master of the American College of Physicians and Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  Among his honors are the Diversity Award from the Association of Professors of Medicine, the John M. Eisenberg Award for Career Achievement in Research from the Society of General Internal Medicine, the Distinguished Educator Award from the Association for Clinical Research Training, the Belding Scribner Award from the American Society of Nephrology, the David Hume Memorial Award from the National Kidney Foundation, the 2021 John Phillips Memorial Award for Distinguished Contributions in Clinical Medicine from the American College of Physicians and the 2021 Distinguished Alumni Award from the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
