About the Jeremiah Stamler Distinguished Young Research Award

Jeremiah Stamler has been a part of Northwestern University’s medical school community since 1958, becoming the first Chair of their Department of Community Health and Preventive Medicine in 1972, and the distinguished Dingman Professor of Cardiology from 1973 to 1990. To honor Dr. Stamler, the Jeremiah Stamler Distinguished Young Research Award was created to portray the influence he had on cardiovascular research and preventive medicine. Each year, the top presenter in the Junior Faculty Basic Science and Junior Faculty Clinical Research categories will be presented with a $10,000 research grant to assist in current and future cardiovascular research studies.

Please join us again in congratulating Dr. Yang on his award, as well as Dr. Moussavi-Harami on representing the division on a national scale.
