LDI Senior Fellows and University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Professors Scott Lorch, MD, MSCE, and Raina Merchant, MD, MSHP, have been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI).
ASCI is a 114-year-old medical society of physician-scientists that supports the scientific efforts, educational needs, and clinical aspirations of physician researchers. It has more than 3,000 members. Membership is a recognition of a researcher’s significant contributions, at a relatively young age, to the understanding of human disease.
Scott Lorch is a Professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine and Director of clinical research within the Division of Neonatology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). His research focuses on health care organization, racial and socioeconomic disparities, perinatal epidemiology, health economics, and quality of care in the perinatal setting, particularly in maternal and neonatal care.
Raina Merchant is the Penn Medicine Associate Vice President and a Professor of Emergency Medicine. As the Director of the Penn Medicine Center for Digital Health, her research focuses on the intersection of digital media and health, evaluating health behaviors and communication using digital platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Instagram, Reddit, and Google.
