Podcast of City Club Speech on School of Medicine Research Available Online


Pamela B. Davis, M.D., Ph.D., dean of Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine, recently shared just a few highlights from the groundbreaking research taking place at the school with a City Club of Cleveland audience.

In her speech last week, Davis discussed what she described as "the twin passions of my professional life: achieving medical discoveries and using them to change the lives of patients." As the head of the School of Medicine, Davis leads an academic division ranked among the top 25 medical schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

She shared with the audience how researchers at Case Western Reserve pioneered medical and technological breakthroughs in the past, and how the school continues reaching for new heights in the current era of medical discovery. During her talk, Davis highlighted some of the innovative partnerships and collaborations taking place now that could lead to the medical discoveries of tomorrow.

As the oldest continuous free speech forum in the country, the City Club of Cleveland is considered the region's premier public podium for civic dialogue. Guest speakers represent a variety of fields and provide a national forum of free speech designed to stir discussion and learning.
