Liu Young Investigator Award presented to Kevin Bruhn, Ph.D.
Date:5/28/2009

LOS ANGELES (May 27, 2009) Kevin Bruhn, PhD, is the winner of the third annual Liu Young Investigator Award, a $10,000 honor aimed at nurturing excellence and providing support for a young scientist on the LA BioMed campus.

Dr. Bruhn came to LA BioMed in 2005 after receiving his PhD in microbiology, immunology and molecular genetics from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2004 and completing a postdoctoral fellowship in tumor immunology at UCLA in 2005.

The Liu Young Investigator Award is presented to a young investigator on the LA BioMed campus who also serves as an assistant professor or instructor. It was created by Patty Liu, in honor of her parents, who were prominent investigators at LA BioMed. In presenting the award, she said that it is meant to "encourage and advocate for young researchers who've chosen to traverse" the unpredictable path of research.

"We appreciate so much Patty Liu's support for this award and her continued support for the LA BioMed campus," said LA Biomed President and CEO Carole Wagner Vallianos, Esq. "Congratulations to Dr. Bruhn and to all the outstanding nominees for the Liu Young Investigator Award. They are the future for LA BioMed."

The other nominees were Atman Shah, MD, Maie St. John, MD, PhD, and Jennifer Yee, MD. Each of the nominees presented their research at the Liu Young Investigators Symposium in April. A committee then evaluated their presentations and chose Dr. Bruhn to receive the award and the $10,000 prize.

"Through the Liu Young Investigators Symposium, Patty Liu ensures that her parents' spirit of supporting future generations of physician-scientists remains ever-present on the campus of Harbor-UCLA," said Gail Anderson, MD, MBA, a member of the LA BioMed Board of Directors and the medical director at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
