Irving Institute Announces 2019 Irving Scholars

May 24, 2019

Recognizing the critical importance of training young clinical investigators, Herbert and Florence Irving earmarked a major portion of the Irving Endowment for the Florence and Herbert Irving Clinical Research Career Awards, usually referred to as the Irving Scholars. The program is open to applicants from all clinical departments at the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Scholars are selected on the basis of research proposals that reflect independent, well-developed scientific initiative in clinical investigation. These three-year awards provide substantial salary support allowing the Scholar more time for clinical investigation. 

The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, together with Dean Lee Goldman, recently announced Dr. Jose Gutierrez-Contreras, assistant professor of neurology in the Division of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease, as among the 2019-2022 Irving Scholars awardees:

Jose Gutierrez-Contreras, MD, MPH
Florence Irving Assistant Professor of Neurology
