Elizabeth H. Bradley, M.B.A., Ph.D. ’97, associate professor of epidemiology and public health, left, and Barbara I. Kazmierczak, M.S., M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of medicine and microbial pathogenesis, were recipients of the 2002 Donaghue Investigator Program Awards for Health-Related Research. The awards, announced in October by the Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation, provide grants of $100,000 a year for five years to prepare medical researchers for an independent research career and for leadership in research to benefit human life. Bradley’s research objective over the five-year period is to examine why clinical care often deviates from clinical guidelines that are widely supported by scientific evidence. She is the first recipient from Yale’s School of Public Health. Kazmierczak is interested in determining how the lung defends itself against microbial pathogens and hopes to develop a better understanding of how epithelial cells contribute to innate and acquired immunity to reduce the risk of opportunistic infections.
