Bernt Receives Clinical Scientist Development Award From Doris Duke Foundation



Kathrin Bernt, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, received a Clinical Scientist Development Award from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

The award provides funding to young clinician investigators so they can devote 75 percent of their professional time to clinical research as they establish their own labs and research teams.

Bernt is one of 17 researchers nationally to receive the honor this year.

Her lab is investigating the role of epigenetic gene regulation in normal hematopoietic stem cells and extending her findings to the study of leukemia.
