In Memorium: Lutz A. Kiesow, MD, PhD.
Message from Joe Frascella, PhD, Vice President of Research:
It is with great sadness that I learned of the recent passing of Lutz A. Kiesow, MD, PhD, who came to Legacy Health and established the Legacy Research Institute (LRI). Although I did not know him personally, nor had I ever met him, his name is often spoken with great warmth and respect by those who worked with him here at LRI. Dr. Kiesow came to Legacy from the Naval Medical Research Institute in Bethesda, MD, where he was institute director.
The following are the words and reflections of Dr. Kiesow by Dr. Michael Bottlang, director of the Biomechanics Laboratory at LRI.
In memory of Dr. Kiesow, LRI will be initiating the Lutz A. Kiesow Outstanding Research and Service Award that will be the highest honor bestowed on an individual for outstanding achievement in support of the mission of the Legacy Research Institute.
