Dr. Radhika Sundararajan Receives a Kellen Junior Faculty Award

Dr. Radhika Sundararajan, assistant professor of emergency medicine, is a recipient of a 2018 Kellen Junior Faculty Fellowship.  The one-time $50,000 award will be used to support a pilot study of community-based HIV testing with traditional healers in Mwanza, Tanzania.

The Kellen Fellowship Award provides research support to exceptional junior female faculty to help them establish a scientific track record, succeed in research and gain promotion to a higher academic rank at Weill Cornell Medicine.

Dr. Sundararajan joined the Department of Emergency Medicine in 2018 from the University of California, San Diego. She is currently supported by a K23 career development award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Her current work focuses on improving community engagement with HIV services among Ugandan communities that utilize traditional healers. 

Over her career, Dr. Sundararajan has received several awards and has published multiple articles in peer reviewed journals. She earned a doctorate in Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania and a medical degree from New York University School of Medicine.  Dr. Sundararajan completed her emergency medicine residency at Harvard-Associated Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Department of Emergency Medicine congratulates Dr. Sundararajan on this well-deserved award.
