This is my personal tribute to an institution at the forefront in bringing about new developments
in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. As these pathological entities become
better understood in terms of molecular and cellular biology, diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventative
cardiology approaches will change dramatically in coming years. I anticipate that the Emory Division
of Cardiology will remain at the cutting edge by recruiting and retaining internationally recognized
experts. Of particular note is their track record in clinical cardiology established by Drs. R. Bruce
Logue and J. Willis Hurst; in interventional cardiology established by Dr. Andreas Gruentzig and as
led by Dr. John Douglas; and in vascular biology and medicine by the research group established by
Dr. R. Wayne Alexander in 1988.
Notably, Emory investigators completed the landmark
under the leadership of Dr. Bill Weintraub that has changed the practice of
cardiology in America. Laus Deo :-)
