Katherine Detre Scholar

The Katherine Detre Scholarship has been established to supplement financial support provided through a Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) position in the Epidemiology Data Center. Recipients of this scholarship are promising incoming students who exemplify the strengths and spirit of Katherine Detre.

Katherine Detre, MD, DrPH, founded the Epidemiology Data Center (EDC) in the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh and directed the center for over 25 years. Among other projects, Dr. Detre led the PTCA Registry and later the Dynamic Registry, the Liver Transplant Database, and the landmark Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation (BARI) and BARI 2D clinical trials.

First and foremost, Dr. Detre was committed to improving the care of patients through the rigorous analysis of clinical evidence. Her intellectual curiosity and extraordinary determination were an inspiration to her colleagues and students.
