Kroenke honored for outstanding contributions in clinical research training
Date:4/17/2012

INDIANAPOLIS Regenstrief Institute investigator Kurt Kroenke, M.D., will receive the 2012 Distinguished Educator Award, to be presented at Translational Science 2012 in Washington, D.C., April 18 to 20. Dr. Kroenke is also Chancellor's Professor of Medicine in the Indiana University School of Medicine and a research scientist with the Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence-Based Practice at the Richard Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis.

Dr. Kroenke is being recognized as a clinical research training program innovator; for his outstanding success as a mentor; for his documented national leadership in clinical research education programs, issues and funding; and for a distinguished career as a clinical investigator.

He serves as director of fellowship and training programs at the Regenstrief Institute, director of the Indiana University Master of Science in Clinical Research Program and director of the Research Education, Training and Career Development Program at the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI).

The Translational Science 2012 awards committee was composed of representatives from the Association for Clinical Research Training, the American Federation for Medical Research, the Society for Clinical and Translational Science and the Association for Patient-Oriented Research.

Dr. Kroenke's clinical research focuses on the evaluation and management of common physical and psychological symptoms such as pain, fatigue, depression and anxiety. He has a particular interest in comparative effectiveness trials and in developing brief scales to assess and monitor symptoms.

A graduate of Valparaiso University, he attended medical school at Washington University in St. Louis and completed a residency in internal medicine at Tripler Army Medical Center. After serving two decades in the military, he retired from the U.S. Army Medical Corps as a colonel. He joined the Regenstrief Institute and Indiana University in 1997.

In addition to authoring more than 280 peer-reviewed publications and receiving numerous teaching awards, he is the recipient of sustained research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs and other U.S. government agencies, foundations and industry. He is a past president of the Society of General Internal Medicine and the Association for Clinical Research Training, and a Master of the American College of Physicians.

"Dr. Kroenke embodies everything one imagines in an outstanding mentor: knowledge, wisdom and total dedication to helping young investigators become accomplished scientists. We are extremely fortunate to have him lead our education programs," said Anantha Shekhar, M.D., Ph.D., associate dean for translational research at the IU School of Medicine and director of the Indiana CTSI, which includes IU, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame.
