Pediatric doctor a 1st for rheumatology award



The Cincinnati Enquirer

Dr. David Glass, director of rheumatology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, has become the nation's first pediatric rheumatologist to receive a Distinguished Investigator Award from the American College of Rheumatology.

Rheumatologists are experts in arthritis and other related diseases.

Glass was honored for a career of achievements, including 16 years as division director. During his tenure, the rheumatology division has grown from two faculty members and eight employees to 11 faculty and 60 employees. Since 1987, the division's research funding has grown from $150,000 to $4.25 million a year.

On the research side, Glass led efforts to establish a clinical trials unit in 1999 to study treatments for juvenile arthritis, and the division serves as the headquarters for a 60-center research group. In 1996, Glass' division won a federal grant that made Cincinnati Children's the nation's first pediatric Multipurpose Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disease Center.
