Columbia University Medical Center announces 2010 Katz Prizes in cardiovascular research
Date:11/4/2010

NEW YORK (Nov. 4, 2010) Columbia University Medical Center has announced the winners of the 5th annual Katz Prizes in Cardiovascular Research, with the 2010 Lewis Katz Visiting Professorship in Cardiovascular Research being awarded to an internationally renowned heart failure expert from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Milton Packer, M.D. and the winners of the 2010 Lewis Katz Cardiovascular Research Prize going to two Columbia researchers studying the underlying molecular pathways of heart disease.

The visiting professorship is being awarded to UT Southwestern's Dr. Packer for his outstanding track record of achievement in heart research, and for making a large number of seminal contributions to the field of heart failure, both in understanding its mechanisms and defining its rational management. His work has spanned nearly 30 years and has been strongly supported by numerous investigator-initiated grants from the National Institutes of Health.

The two research awards are being given to Steven O. Marx, M.D., an associate professor of medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, and P. Christian Schulze, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University Medical Center.

The awards will be presented at a reception at Columbia University Medical Center tonight, following afternoon lectures by the winners. Lewis Katz, entrepreneur and philanthropist, created these prizes five years ago in order to recognize outstanding contributions in cardiology and to reward and encourage research related to cardiovascular health.

"The award symbolizes the many contributions made by many scientists before me," Dr. Packer said upon receiving the award. "Thirty years ago, heart failure was a uniformly progressive disease that could only be expected to get worse as a patient got older. Now with the help of new therapies, we have made great progress but it's important that there not be a period of 'intell
