Presented to junior investigators with a demonstrated focus on geriatrics research, the Outstanding Junior Investigator of the Year Award recognizes a record of academic accomplishments, including journal publications, poster or oral presentations, and grant publications for aging research. Our 2017 awardee is Dae Kim, MD, MPH, ScD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, whose publications continue to represent innovation in aging, epidemiology, and care for cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Kim has authored 39 peer-reviewed papers and two book chapters, most focused on improving evidence to guide treatment decisions for frail older adults. Dr. Kim also has explored the effectiveness and safety of prescribing for older adults who are under-represented in clinical trials. Dr. Kim lectures on epidemiology of frailty and runs discussions for clinical investigators in the Clinical Effectiveness Program of the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. He has been a member of the AGS Junior Faculty Research Special Interest Group and the AGS Research Methods Subcommittee, among other contributions to the AGS.
