Three Emory University faculty members have been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), one of the nation’s oldest and most respected medical honor societies for physician-scientists. ASCI supports the scientific efforts, educational needs, and clinical aspirations of physician-scientists in the advancement of clinical practice. The 100 new inductees come from 50 different institutions and “represent excellence across the breadth of academic medicine” according to ASCI. Elected to the society from Emory are:
