2017 Report: Donna and Tom May Fellowship Recipients
Thanks to your visionary partnership, the Donna and Tom May Fellowship Fund in Vascular Medicine supports our most talented young physicians in the field, providing critical training and resources to the next generation of compassionate caregivers and innovative researchers. Under the leadership of Dr. Goldhaber, these bright physician-scientists are working toward improved tools for diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases, taking a translational approach that will accelerate discovery and benefit patients here in Boston and beyond. As you read the following updates from this year’s May fellows, we hope you take great pride in the remarkable work made possible by your outstanding generosity.
Arman Qamar, MD,
who will conclude his fellowship this year, continues to work toward improved diagnostics and treatments for patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD).
Aaron Aday, MD,
our other concluding fellow, is furthering research aimed at identifying new serologic and genetic predictors of vascular disease, including PAD.
Aaron Kithcart, MD, PhD,
our continuing May Fellow, is identifying novel causal pathways of atherogenesis—the formation of plaques in the lining of the arteries.
Brett Carroll, MD,
a recent addition to the May Fellowship, is focused on various ways to improve diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment for patients with pulmonary embolism.
