Tamar Krishnamurti, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, was recently announced as the winner of the 2020 Kuno Award for Applied Science, a grant through the S&R Foundation.
The $100,000 award is a biennial award designed to support women social innovators using scientific research and principles to address a 21st century problem. The award supports the translation of scientific research to a practical, real-world solution for those aiming to achieve broad social impact.
Krishnamurti’s research examines problems that meet at the intersection of health, risk, technology and the environment. Currently, she is looking at risk perception and communication and the development of mobile health strategies to identify and intervene on health risks, including pregnancy-related risks.
