UC Doctor Recieves SAEM Neuroscience Research Fellowship Award

Cincinnati--Peter D. Panagos, MD, fourth-year chief resident of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, is the recipient of the 2002 Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) Neuroscience Research Fellowship Grant. The grant is made possible through an educational grant from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals.

Dr. Panagos will begin his fellowship on July 1 and end June 30, 2003. He will use the fellowship to become a leader in academic emergency medicine working in the arena of cerebrovascular research by participating on the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Team. This team, part of one of the oldest and most respected programs in the U.S., has evaluated and treated more patients with acute cerebrovascular emergencies than any other. Dr. Panagos will receive one-on-one training with vascular neurologists and emergency physicians with significant experience in acute stroke management.

"The Department of Emergency Medicine and I are honored to receive this award," Dr. Panagos said. "I look forward with great anticipation to dedicating the next year to learning and gaining significant experience in the evaluation and management of patients with acute neurological emergencies, working with a team of world-class stroke researchers. I'm very grateful to SAEM and AstraZeneca for their support in this endeavor."

"After a thorough evaluation by the committee, the SAEM Fellowship Committee was unanimous in its decision to award Dr. Panagos the 2002 Neuroscience Fellowship Grant," said Dexter L. Morris, MD, PhD, of the SAEM Grant Committee. "This award will allow Dr. Panagos to obtain the training and skills to become a leader in the acute treatment of stroke and improve our care of stroke patients nationwide."

Dr. Panagos will also obtain critical research training undertaking a curriculum with formal course work in research methodology, clinical trial design, bio-statistics, epidemiology, ethics and grant writing, and participate in a number of research studies focused on acute stroke.
