  • 1. EMORY CARDIOLOGY Newsletter May/June 2009 Emory University, Division of Cardiology 1639 Pierce Dr, WMB 3 rd floor, Atlanta, GA 30322 404-727-8147 email:cardiology@emory.edu http://www.medicine.emory.edu/divisions/cardiology Introduction by W. Robert Taylor, MD, PhD Welcome to the second edition of our Divisional Newsletter. This month we have focused on IN THIS ISSUE some of the ongoing research accomplishments of members of our division. Emory Cardiology enjoys a very strong international reputation in cardiovascular research that spans the many diverse aspects of cardiology from basic cellular and molecular biology to population-based Introduction studies. As highlighted in the newsletter this month, several faculty members have received Fellowship News national recognition for their contributions and our external funding continues to grow with Div. Highlights addition of nine new grants in the past two months. Soon to be added to this list is a new NIH Program Project Grant led by Dr. Kathy Griendling. This is the 4th major, multi-investigator Anniversaries grant within our division. Despite these successes, there is much more for us to do in the Teaching Awards research arena. One of our most important tasks is to fully integrate our research mission into New Faculty the teaching and patient care missions of our division. One major characteristic that sets a Reminders clinical unit within a university apart from our counterparts in the private healthcare sector is our commitment to scholarly research. At Emory, it is important for all of us to realize that our DOM Grand Rounds academic research program is an integral part of our identity and the culture of our division has to continue to evolve such that the tri-partite mission of research, education and patient care is Recent Grants and Publications truly a seamless continuum. Perhaps the best evidence of our progress in this area is our annual cardiology trainees’ research symposium. This year’s symposium will be held on June Graduating th Fellows 2009 16 and feature basic, translational and clinical research presentations by students and fellows in the division. I encourage all of you to attend at least a part of this important meeting as we celebrate the accomplishments of the next generation of researchers. It is also a wonderful opportunity to get an overview of some of the outstanding ongoing research in Cardiology. Research is clearly not all that we do. But, it is an important cornerstone of our division that distinguishes us from non-academic clinical practices and provides us with unique opportunities to remain on the forefront of cardiovascular healthcare. Fellowship News We would like to congratulate our graduating Cardiology fellows! We are proud to have another accomplished group of fellows complete their training this year. A list of graduating fellows along with their new contact information is attached to this newsletter.
  • 2. Page 2 EMORY CARDIOLOGY Fellowship News Continued… In other fellowship news, Matthew Janik and Heather Westmoreland will serve as chief fellows for the 2009-2010 academic year. Matt will be primarily based at Emory University Hospital and Heather will be primarily based at Grady Memorial Hospital. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dalton McLean and David Vadnais for serving as Chief Fellows for the current academic year. Both Dalton and David were outstanding Chief Fellows and we appreciate their efforts over the past year. Division Highlights David Harrison, MD, will be honored with the Carl J. Wiggers Award at the American Physiological Society meeting in 2010. The Carl J. Wiggers Award is presented to a scientist who is a Fellow of the Cardiovascular Section of the APS, who has made outstanding and lasting contributions throughout his career to cardiovascular research, and who will bring broader and more international representation to the cardiovascular section meetings. This award is in honor of the Cardiovascular Section's founder, Carl J. Wiggers. David Harrison, MD Arshed Quyyumi, MD, was featured in the WHSC Research News April 15, 2009, edition in an article entitled “Infused Bone Marrow Stem Cells Increase Circulation in Heart.” He presented his results on the American College of Cardiology conference in Orlando last March. Heart attack patients treated with stem cells taken from their own bone marrow had increased circulation within the heart in a recent clinical study. The new treatment could potentially reduce long-term complications after severe heart attack. Read the entire story at: Arshed Quyyumi, MD http://whsc.emory.edu/home/news/releases/2009/03/bone-marrow-stem-cells-after-heart-attack.html Leslee Shaw, PhD, and Javed Butler, MD, MPH, were selected for the Simon Dack award for their excellence in critical evaluations of manuscripts for the Journal of American College of Cardiology. The editors placed their evaluations at the highest level in terms of critical thinking, constructive comments and value in reaching a decision relative to competing papers. Approximately , three individuals of the thousands who review for JACC Javed Butler, MD, Leslee Shaw, PhD will receive this award. MPH Abhinav Goyal, MD, MHS, received the Young Investigator Honorable Mention at the 2009 American College of Cardiology Conference in Orlando. His presentation was entitled “Differential outcomes associated with hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia in acute myocardial infarction” Abhinav Goyal, MD, MHS
