Outstanding Eagle Alumnus

Congratulations to an Outstanding North Olmsted High School Eagle Alumnus!

Rahul Mital – North Olmsted High School Class of 2010 – is a third year medical student at the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences and is one of only nine students across the United States to be awarded a Sarnoff Fellowship for 2018/2019. 

Rahul is studying to work in the field of pediatric cardiology. 

“This is a very competitive, prestigious award,” said Dr. Christopher Cooper, dean of the UT College of Medicine and Life Sciences and the executive vice president for clinical affairs. “We are proud of Rahul and look forward to his achievements in cardiovascular research.”

The Sarnoff Fellowship program offers medical students enrolled in accredited U.S. medical schools the opportunity to spend a year conducting intensive work in a biomedical research facility in the United States other than the medical school in which they are enrolled.

“I’m humbled by the opportunity that lies ahead of me and plan to make the most of it,” Mital said. “Being a member of the Sarnoff Cardiovascular Research Foundation and partaking in world class research while receiving mentorship and guidance is truly an invaluable step in achieving my goals.”

Rahul plans to study cardiogenesis, which is the development of the heart in the embryo, and how to use gene therapy as a potential treatment for congenital heart disease.”

“No child deserves to be born with a congenital heart disease, but the unfortunate truth is that congenital heart disease is the most common type of birth defect, affecting 40,000 births per year in the United States alone,” Mital said. “If a greater understanding of the underlying pathophysiology is achieved, patient care can move away from expensive surgeries and lifelong follow-ups, and instead be focused at the molecular level.”

Note: Rahul Mital was a National Meriti Semifinalist for the NOHS Class of 2010 and was voted “Most Likely to Make a Difference in the World” by his North Olmsted High School classmates.
