Vedantham-led team honored for clinical research


Suresh Vedantham, MD, professor of radiology at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and a team of clinical trial investigators have been recognized with a 2018 Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award from the Clinical Research Forum.
