Tribute to Emory Cardiology

General Info




Heart Center







Emory HospitalGood morning!

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 COURAGE Trial under the leadership of Dr. Bill Weintraub that has changed the practice of cardiology in America. Laus Deo :-)
