"I believe that this award will increase awareness about women’s healthcare issues, particularly those related to pre-term birth and low-birth weight. Innovative research in this area is being done right here in Tulsa,” Dr. Kaul said. “I am also hopeful that this will motivate students to enter the exciting field of biomedical research so that the fight against human diseases is continued globally because health, after all, is global."
