Four VA doctors were among 102 government employees who received the 2013 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The four from VA were cited for their separate research projects to improve the care of the nation’s Veterans. Many of the PECASE award winners were welcomed to Washington by President Obama.

Dr. Karunesh Ganguly, clinical neurologist at the San Francisco VAMC; Dr. Brian Head, a research health scientist for the VA San Diego Healthcare System; and Dr. Katherine Iverson, a clinical research psychologist for the VA Boston Healthcare System sat down with VA News to talk about their work that earned the awards.
