CHSS DATA CENTER WORK WEEKEND NOVEMBER 18-20
The Fall Work Weekend at the CHSS Data Center in Toronto will be held November 18-20th, 2016. All members, but especially newer members are encouraged to attend and get involved directly in the important research activities of the CHSS. Along with many other ongoing projects, the Work Weekend will feature discussion of the analysis of Optimal Timing of Stage-2-Palliation after the Norwood Operation. Kirklin-Ashburn Fellow Jim Meza will be presenting this work at the 2017 meeting of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons in Houston in January 2017. On the strength of the superb abstract, this study was selected for the J. Maxwell Chamberlain Memorial Paper at the STS 53rd Annual Meeting. Congratulations to Jim, to P.I. Jake Jaquiss, and to the entire team of investigators.
John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund
The Kirklin/Ashburn Fellowship Fund was established to support the CHSS Data Center Research Fellow. In 2008, CHSS changed the name of the John W. Kirklin Fellowship Endowment Fund to the John W Kirklin/David A. Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund. This change was made in recognition of Dr. David Ashburn, the very first Kirklin Fellow, who was tragically killed when his flight crashed on June 4, 2007 after procuring a donor organ for transplantation.
The CHSS Data Center, located at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, plays a crucial role in recording, analyzing and tracking the data of many patients with congenital heart disease. Moreover, the Research Fellow is critical to furthering the goals of both the CHSS and the Data Center while providing an outstanding research experience for a young trainee. In order to recruit the very best talent available, we must ensure that the John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Fund is fully supported.
