Professor of Pediatrics and Associate Director for External Relations and Strategic Projects, Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation
The Arnold W. Strauss Fellow Award, sponsored by the Office of Pediatric Clinical Fellowships and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, is a one-year $10,000 funding opportunity awarded to three Clinical Fellows (MDs) and three Postdoctoral Fellows. It was instituted in 2014 in honor of Dr. Arnold Strauss’ tireless efforts at advocacy and championship towards higher education at Cincinnati Children’s.
Throughout much of his career, Strauss conducted his own groundbreaking research into mitochondrial proteins and the genetic causes of congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathy. His research efforts were rewarded with continuous NIH funding, hundreds of publications and prestigious awards that included the E. Mead Johnson Award for Excellence in Pediatric Research and the American Heart Association’s Basic Science Research Award.
