Indo-Canadian scientist awarded by American Heart Association

Nov 17, 2008 - 1:15:12 PM
'These seminal studies revolutionised the management of patients with heart failure and have set the approach for much clinical research in the field,' Gardner said.

[RxPG] New York, Nov 13 - The American Heart Association has awarded eminent Indo-Canadian scientist Salim Yusuf with its Clinical Research Prize for 2008 in recognition of his work in the field of cardiovascular disease.

A professor of medicine and director of the Population Health Research Institute at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Yusuf received the award from the American Heart Association president, Timothy J. Gardner, over the weekend during its annual convention in New Orleans.

'A cardiologist and epidemiologist, Dr. Yusuf has carried out a highly regarded international research programme utilising large scale clinical trials, meta-analyses and epidemiologic studies using innovative designs to definitively address, and provide reliable answers to, questions of great consequence to the health of populations around the world,' Gardner said in his speech.

A graduate of Saint John's Medical College in Bangalore, Yusuf coordinated the first International Study of Infarct Survival, which demonstrated the benefits of beta-blocker drugs in treating acute heart attacks, Gardner said.

At the National Institutes of Health, Yusuf led the studies of Left Ventricular Dysfunction and the Digitalis Investigations Group study.

'These seminal studies revolutionised the management of patients with heart failure and have set the approach for much clinical research in the field,' Gardner said.

With a PhD from the Oxford University, Yusuf is known for establishing the world's first study examining the impact of societal changes on health behaviours, risk factors and disease in more than 400 communities in 18 countries.
