G2P Director Robert C. Green, MD, MPH, is selected for the Brigham and Women's Hospital Kenneth L. Baughman Faculty Mentoring Award.
The award – to be presented during Medical Grand Rounds at BWH on Jan. 20 – recognizes a faculty member who demonstrates effective mentoring through guiding and encouraging the career development of fellow faculty in the department.
Established in 2010, the award is named in memory of Kenneth L. Baughman, MD, who exemplified dedication to the career development of faculty. Baughman was director of the Advanced Heart Disease Section of BWH's Division of Cardiovascular Medicine from 2002 to 2009.
Green, a medical geneticist and physician-scientist, directs the G2P Research Program – a program within BWH, the Broad Institute and Harvard Medical School focused on studying translational genomics and health outcomes. He leads and co-leads the first randomized trials to explore the implementation of medical sequencing in adults (MedSeq Project) and newborns (BabySeq Project), respectively, as well as several other projects.
Green also serves as associate director for Research at Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine and is a member of the Executive Committee for the Partners BioBank.
