Interpreting Trial Data While Preparing the Next Generation of Doctors

An experienced clinical investigator, Dr. Packer is professor and chair of the department of clinical sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, having moved in 2003 from Columbia University, where he was chief of the division of circulatory physiology and director of the Heart Failure Center. Over the years he has taken a leading role in the development of new heart failure drugs particularly ACE inhibitors and beta-blockers. Because of his work, these drugs are now the standard of care for most patients with heart failure.

After receiving his M.D. from Jefferson Medical College in 1973, he carried out his internship and residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed his fellowship in cardiology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. At UT Southwestern, Dr. Packer has been responsible for engineering a renaissance in clinical research at the institution that has led to more than $100 million in NIH funding.

"Dr. Packer is someone who has had a revolutionary impact on treating patients with congestive heart failure and continues to be a leader in the field," said Allan Schwartz, M.D., chief of the Division of Cardiology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. "Drs. Marx and Schulze represent the best and the brightest of our young physician-scientists and are the future of cardiovascular research."

Dr. Packer has served, or currently serves, on the editorial boards of many major medical journals, including Circulation and Journal of the American College of Cardiology. He has also been elected to a number of societies, including the American Society for Clinical Investigation. He has served on the executive committe
