Cari Kitahara Receives Rosalind Franklin Society Award for Paper in Thyroid
, by Jennifer K. Loukissas, M.P.P.
Cari Kitahara, Ph.D., senior investigator in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch, received the 2nd Annual Rosalind Franklin Society (RFS) Award in Science for her publication entitled, Trends in the Management of Localized Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma in the United States (2000–2018), published in Thyroid.
The award is given jointly in July of each year—to commemorate Rosalind Franklin’s birthday—by Mary Ann Liebert Inc., publisher, and the Rosalind Franklin Society. It recognizes the best paper by a woman in science or an individual from an under-represented minority group in each of the publisher’s 100 peer-reviewed journals.
The paper describes trends in clinical management of thyroid cancers that were determined to be low-risk. These changes were influenced by new recommendations from the American Thyroid Association to reduce overtreatment in adult and pediatric thyroid cancer cases.
