Two Pitt researchers were named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in the health care category for 2019.

  • Inmaculada Hernandez, 28, assistant professor in Pharmacy and Therapeutics, started her own research group in 2016 at Pitt after her completing her Ph.D. at 25. Forbes cited her research on drug pricing, which found prices of drugs increase twice as fast during a shortage as they would otherwise and quantified the full cost of recently approved CAR T-cell cancer therapies.
  • Shinjini Kundu, 28, a doctor at UPMC and medical researcher at Pitt, developed a new technology to analyze medical images and detect disease using artificial intelligence while enrolled in the joint Pitt/Carnegie Mellon Medical Scientist Training Program.
