ASP announces 2010 T. Franklin Williams Scholars
Date:8/3/2010

The Association of Specialty Professors (ASP) has announced the ninth class of T. Franklin Williams Scholars. Seven new investigators will join 75 previous T. Franklin Williams Scholars in working to achieve the program's goal of increasing the capacity of internal medicine subspecialists to care for the aging population.

T. Franklin Williams Scholars receive two- to four-year career development awards funded by generous grants from the Atlantic Philanthropies (USA) Inc., the John A. Hartford Foundation, and 11 internal medicine specialty society partners. The research funded by these awards will advance what is known about the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis, clinical outcomes of patients with chronic kidney disease, rhinosinusitis, and palliative concerns of frail older adults.

T. Franklin Williams, MD, for whom the program is named, said, "It is indeed an honor and much satisfaction for me to be associated with this program, which addresses the important mission of identifying and addressing the challenges of our aging population. I congratulate the promising scholars being supported, and I look forward to their and our futures."
