Dr. Robert Steven Ledley Endowed Scholarship Fund

The fund provides partial merit-based scholarships for fall incoming students enrolled in either the MD/MS Dual-Degree Program or Masters in Systems Medicine Program. The fund is established by National Biomedical Research Foundation and the Ledley family in memory of Dr. Robert S. Ledley, a visionary scientist, inventor of the first whole-body CT scanner, and a pioneer of computer medicine and medical informatics. Dr. Ledley was a Professor of Physiology, Biophysics, and Radiology at Georgetown University from 1970-2005.
