Paula Chatterjee Wins ASCI 2024 Young Physician-Scientist Award
Cited for Her Early-Career Research of U.S. Safety-Net Care
Paula Chatterjee, MD, MPH, LDI Senior Fellow and University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Assistant Professor, has been named a 2024 recipient of the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) Young Physician Scientist Award.
The annual award, a recognition of a physician scientist’s early-career achievements, will be presented at the joint annual meeting of ASCI, the Association of American Physicians (AA), and the American Physician Scientists Association in Chicago in April.
Established in 1908 and one of the nation’s oldest medical honor societies, the ASCI is focused on the special role of physician-scientists in research, clinical care, and medical education. It has more than 3,000 members representing all medical specialties.
Chatterjee, who is also the Director of Health Equity Research at LDI, has developed a robust portfolio of extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and national foundations for research examining the financing of U.S. safety-net care, identifying current financial challenges of safety-net providers, and seeking out solutions that ensure equitable and stable access to high-quality care. Her research has examined determinants of safety-net hospital financing, the use of global budgets to stabilize rural hospitals, and the role of health systems in improving population health equity.
She completed her residency and chief residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, received her MD from Harvard Medical School and her MPH from Yale University, and practices inpatient medicine at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in Philadelphia.
