URMC researcher named to national post

Rochester Business Journal
April 2, 2013

University of Rochester Medical Center pediatric researcher Kate Ackerman M.D. has been named secretary-treasurer-elect of the Society for Pediatric Research.

Ackerman’s research concentrates on identifying genes involved with lung and diaphragm development. She is concerned with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a birth defect that occurs in one of every 2,000 to 3,000 live births and results in death or illness in 40 percent to 62 percent of affected infants.  

A part of the American Pediatric Society, the Society for Pediatric Research seeks to encourage young pediatrics researchers by providing a forum for interchange of ideas and an opportunity for these young investigators to present their work. Ackerman is slated to assume the post in May.
