AAMC awards Emory Integrated Core Facilities

The Association of American Medical Colleges has selected Emory University as one of six winners nationally in its 2017 research program awards, recognizing exceptional initiatives that enhance rigor and reproducibility or research sharing in biomedical research.

The Emory Integrated Core Facilities (EICF) was the third-place winner in the Sharing Research Resources Awards. The award winners “demonstrated successful sharing of research resources between institutions and campuses, including medical schools, teaching hospitals and other academic institutions.”

Michael Zwick, PhD, director of the Emory Integrated Core Facilities, was recognized for directing the reorganization of EICF, not only in support of Emory faculty, but also as a resource for institutions across Georgia. Zwick is assistant vice president for research in the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center and associate professor of human genetics in Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Zwick is a faculty member in the GMB and PBEE programs.

"The mission of the EICF is to accelerate discovery for our investigators,” says Zwick.

Kathy Griendling, PhD, Emory professor of medicine, vice chair for research and faculty development in the Department of Medicine, and associate dean for faculty affairs and professional development, is also mentioned in this story. Dr. Griendling is an MSP faculty member.
