The Committee on Women and Medicine in Science (COWIMS) celebrates Women’s History Month in March by featuring Dean Melina R. Kibbe, MD, FACS, FAHA, as the Woman of the Month. In addition to her leadership as the UVA School of Medicine’s Dean and Chief Health Affairs Officer, Dr. Kibbe is a highly respected general and vascular surgeon and researcher. Dr. Kibbe’s research interests focus on developing novel therapies for patients with vascular disease, while simultaneously studying the mechanism of how these therapies impact the vascular wall. She is a strong advocate for sex inclusion in biomedical research.
