Pioneers in Cardiology - Braunwald

During the 2018 academic year, we inaugurated a biannual "Pioneers in Cardiology" lecture series.  We are honored that our first pioneer in this program will be none other than Dr. Eugene  Braunwald, Distinguished Hersey Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and the founding chair of the TIMI Study Group at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Since his first major paper was published in Circulation Research in July 1954, he has been one of the most influential cardiologists in the recent era. Dr. Braunwald was the first adult cardiologist elected to the National Academy of Sciences of the U.S and was voted by the Nobel Prize winners as the one “person who has contributed the most to cardiology in recent years.”  Read more.

Dr Braunwald presented on the "War Against Heart Failure" during Medical Grand Rounds at noon for the Department of Medicine and then on “The PCSK9 and Cholesterol Story” from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Michael S. Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education, located on the ground floor of the Don Soffer Clinical Research Center and is open to the entire UM community and to the public.
