Reich Wins Rubenstein Prize

Surgery resident Heidi Reich, MD, is a winner of the 2015 Paul Rubenstein, MD, Prize for Excellence in Resident Research. The prize was awarded May 20, after presentations by Reich and the three other finalists.

The title of Reich's presentation was "Repeat Dosing of Allogeneic Cardiosphere-Derived Cells After Myocardial Infarction in Immunocompetent Rats."

This year's other Rubenstein winner is Christopher Vanichsarn, MD, a resident in the Department of Medicine.

Named for the first director of Medical Education at Cedars-Sinai, the competitive prize recognizes outstanding research by residents. It is sponsored by the Burns and Allen Research Institute and the Cedars-Sinai Clinical and Translational Research Center, a partner in the UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
