Residents Woroniecka and Wang Join Lefkowitz Society

Congratulations to our first-year residents Karolina Woroniecka, MD PhD and Bangchen Wang, MD PhD, who were selected to join the Robert J. Lefkowitz Society. The Robert J. Lefkowitz Society provides a home for MD and MD/PhD post-graduate trainees who are in the Duke University School of Medicine and are pursuing careers with a primary focus on basic and translational research as physician-investigators. Through formal and informal mentoring relationships, the Lefkowitz Society provides promising post-graduate trainees with a greater understanding of how to develop successful academic careers. The Society helps members grow opportunities to develop successful research projects, and helps them find appropriate research mentors and investigative teams as early as possible in order to enhance their future research success and productivity. The Lefkowitz Society is named for Robert J. Lefkowitz, MD, professor of medicine in the Division of Cardiology and recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2012. Duke Pathology Residency Program Director Thomas J. Cummings, MD says, “We thank the Robert J. Lefkowitz Society for providing this well-earned honor to our physician-scientist residents, and it is a testament to the career-building opportunities a Duke Pathology residency can provide.”
