Lucy Zumwinkle Kornblith, M.D. received her undergraduate degree from University of California Santa Barbara. She received her M.D. from the University of Colorado Medical School in 2009, graduating AOA. She completed her residency in General Surgery at University of California San Francisco in 2016. She was recognized at graduation for her training with two awards of distinction: the Haile T. Debas Resident Teaching Award and the Fred H. & Esther E. Nusz Resident Achievement Award. Dr. Kornblith went on for subspecialty training in Trauma and Surgical Critical Care at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, University of California San Francisco from 2016-2018.

In 2018, she stayed at University of California San Francisco as Assistant Professor in Residence in the Division of General Surgery, where she clinically practices Trauma Surgery, Surgical Critical Care, and Acute Care Surgery. While at UCSF, Dr. Kornblith was the Trauma and Critical Care Clinical and Translational Research Fellow in the Cohen Trauma Research Lab at UCSF funded by a NIH Trauma Training Grant from 2012-2014.

During this time, she played a pivotal role in the translation study of coagulation and inflammation perturbations after trauma. She now spends 75% of her time performing translational research in the field of post-injury platelet biology. She was awarded the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, Trauma Research Scholarship in 2018 and is now supported through 2023 by a Patient Oriented Mentored Career Development Award through the National Institute of General Medical Studies section of the NIH for her study of post-injury platelet biology. Dr. Kornblith is also instrumental in the UCSF Women In Surgery Interest Group.
