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.

While in surgical training at the University of California San Francisco, Dr. Kornblith spent two years as a Trauma and Critical Care Clinical and Translational Research Fellow in the Trauma Translational Research Lab at UCSF funded by a NIH Trauma Training Grant from 2012-2014.

Dr. Kornblith 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.

In 2018, Dr. Kornblith joined the faculty 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. She has played a pivotal role in the translational study of coagulation and inflammation perturbations after trauma. She performs translational research in the field of post-injury platelet biology. 

Dr. Kornblith 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, and a University of California San Francisco School of Medicine Irene Perstein Award for her study of post-injury platelet biology.

Dr. Kornblith is co-director of the research collaborative Trauma, Injury Science, and Critical Care Collaborative (TRISECCCT) at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, and is co-chair of the University of California San Francisco Department of Surgery Muriel Steele Society, an inclusive community dedicated to inspiring, supporting, and promoting women surgeons so they can thrive at all stages of their careers.
