Announcing the 2023 Wu Tsai Performance Clinician-Scientist Fellows

The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance is proud to announce its 2023 cohort of Clinician-Scientist Fellows. These four individuals were selected for their outstanding potential to advance our understanding of peak performance.

The Clinician-Scientist Fellowship is a two-year program designed to support researchers who will advance our understanding of human performance through the design of novel, clinically relevant studies. It is a unique opportunity that allows fellows to devote significant time to independent research, expand their clinical and research networks, and build connections across human performance communities.

Here are our 2023 Wu Tsai Performance Clinician-Scientist Fellows:

 

Roy Collins, MD

Clinical Scholar – Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences

Roy Collins’ research seeks to measure and build resilience toward peak performance. He will explore questions of whether or not there are valid, reliable assessment measures to quantify resilience, as well as investigate the possibility of biometric measures that correlate with resilience. Dr. Collins is under the mentorship of Dr. Douglas Noordsy and Dr. Rob Malenka.

 

Daniel Katz, MD

Clinical Instructor – Medicine/Cardiovascular Medicine

Daniel Katz will study the body’s biomolecular response to exercise. His primary objective is to examine the role of vascular extracellular matrix (ECM) biology in contributing to the benefits of physical activity. Dr. Katz is guided by Dr. Euan Ashley.

 

Dan Seung Kim, MD, PhD, MPH

PGY-5 Fellow – Medicine/Cardiovascular Medicine

Dan Seung Kim is on a mission to identify cardiac exerkines in endurance activity, with an emphasis on cardiac tissue. Dr. Kim is mentored by Dr. Euan Ashley.

 

Muthukumar Ramanathan, MD, PhD

Clinical Instructor – Pathology

Muthukumar Ramanathan’s research is centered on understanding immune glycosylation differences in performance, specifically how it is altered in individuals who are highly active (peak performers) compared to those who have low physical activity (sedentary). Dr. Ramanathan’s mentors are Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, Dr. David Cornfield, and Dr. Malene Lindholm.
