Morrow Recognized for Advances in Cardiac Imaging Research
Dr. John P. Morrow has already received several awards for his research, which currently focuses on ion channel regulation and translational research in cardiac electrophysiology.
After graduating magna cum laude from Brown University with a degree in biology, Dr. Morrow earned his M.D. from the College of Physicians & Surgeons (P&S) in 2000. He then completed his residency at P&S, as well as two fellowships: one in Cardiology, in the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Research Pathway; and one in Clinical Electrophysiology. He is certified by the ABIM in internal medicine, cardiology, and cardiac electrophysiology.
In 2009, he was named a Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Scholar at P&S, in support of his translational research into why heart function often improves in advanced-stage heart failure patients after the implantation of a left ventricular assist device. His other honors include the International Competitive Grants Award for Young Investigators, from the GlaxoSmithKline Research & Education Foundation for Cardiovascular Disease (2008), and the Hamilton Southworth Research Award (2005); he is also a Member of the Heart Rhythm Society. To date, Dr. Morrow has published nine articles on his investigations, in such journals as American Heart Journal, Biochemistry, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Journal of Biological Chemistry.
