Recognition from your peers is always a good thing.

Such is the case for Dr. Jesse Roman, who recently received the 2014 Founders Medal presented annually by the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation.

Roman, Chairman of the University of Louisville Department of Medicine, was given the award at the SSCI part of the 2014 Southern Regional Meetings in New Orleans.

Dr. David Guidot, his friend and former colleague at Emory University where Roman served prior to his appointment at U of L, presented the award.

The medal is given to academicians based on their accomplishments in education, research and patient care consistent with the mission of the SSCI.

Roman served as president of SSCI in 2009 and remains on its External Advisory Committee. He also currently chairs the Membership and Fund Raising Committees and hosts the Lung Club during the meeting every year.

The SSCI currently boasts 34 members from the University of Louisville Department of Medicine.
