WCM-Q Alumnus Wins Prestigious Research Award for the Second Time

Doha – May 15, 2023: Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) alumnus Dr. Sadeer Al-Kindi has won the coveted American College of Cardiology (ACC) Young Investigator Award for the second time. 

Dr. Al-Kindi, who graduated from WCM-Q in 2013, won first prize in the clinical investigation category of the annual ACC awards for his research, which largely focuses on how environmental and socioeconomic factors impact heart health. The award was presented at the annual meeting of ACC in New Orleans. Dr. Al-Kindi also won the Young Investigator Award in 2020. 

After graduation, Dr. Al-Kindi completed his internal medicine residency, cardiology fellowship and one-year advanced cardiac imaging program at University Hospitals/Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he now holds the positions of attending physician, assistant professor of medicine and radiology, co-director of the Center for Vascular Metabolic Disease, and medical director of the Cardiovascular Phenomics Core. 

As a cardiologist with a specific focus on prevention and imaging, Dr. Al-Kindi’s research has investigated the intersection between the natural and built environment, social environments, and heart disease. He uses clinical and imaging-based data to analyze health effects using computational tools. 

Dr. Al-Kindi said: “Winning this award is a great honor for any junior cardiology researcher. I am very grateful that my work has been acknowledged and for the support I have received from mentors and collaborators. The rigorous and comprehensive training I received at WCM-Q from very highly qualified and experienced faculty provided me with a solid foundation in medicine and cardiology, and the excellent guidance and mentorship they offered me, as well as opportunities to participate in research, has been a great help to me in my pursuit of a successful career in cardiology research.” 

Dr. Thurayya Arayssi, professor of clinical medicine and vice dean for academic and curricular affairs at WCM-Q, said: “The wonderful achievements of Dr. Al-Kindi are a source of great pride and admiration for everyone at WCM-Q. We are so pleased that his excellent and important work has been acknowledged once again by the American College of Cardiology.”
