leading endocrinologists. He spent the early years of his career at the University of California, Los Angeles for six years where he was faculty and chief of the neuroendocrine labs for the San Fernando Valley program. He would move on to Wayne State University in Detroit, serving 15 years as the director of endocrinology, metabolism and hypertension. Beginning in 1999, he became chief of endocrinology, diabetes and hypertension at the State University of New York (SUNY) Health Science Center in Brooklyn.

Sowers is now MU's Thomas W. and Joan F. Burns Missouri Chair in Diabetology, as well as director of the Thomas W. and Joan F. Burns Center for Diabetes and Cardiovascular Research. He also directs the endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism division in the Department of Internal Medicine, where he serves as vice chair for research. He holds a joint appointment as a professor in the Department of Medical Pharmacology and Physiology, where he trained as a student under James O. Davis, MD, PhD, a National Academy of Sciences member who helped build MU's international reputation in cardiovascular research.

Physiology department chair Ronald Korthuis, PhD, said Sowers' training and experience allows him to combine the best qualities of a physician-scientist.

"Dr. Sowers is a 'triple threat' because he is a clinician who is also a superb researcher and educator," said Korthuis, MU's George L. and Melna A. Bolm Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Health. "He sees connections in research and clinical disease few of us can. He then takes those discoveries and is able to translate them from bench to bedside."

Sowers' studies have been supported by such organizations as the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the American Diabetes Association. He serves as associate editor for the journals Diabetes and Hypertension, and is editor-in-chief of CardioRenal Medicine, a journal he foun
