Temple's Dr. Steven Houser recognized by the American Heart Association
Date:11/20/2013

y in diseases such as hypertension and ischemic heart failure, which results from an insufficient flow of oxygen to the heart muscle. And he tested novel approaches to the prevention and treatment of those conditions. He made major advances in the scientific understanding of fundamental cardiac function, and he identified molecular defects that contribute to cardiac dysfunction.

Houser's research and his recruitment of key researchers to Temple contributed to the establishment of its reputation as a leader in cardiovascular research. Importantly, he worked to create the CVRC, which opened in 2003, and which he has directed since that time. He also was instrumental in the recruitment of Dr. Koch, who, along with Houser's assistance, developed the Center for Translational Medicine at Temple University School of Medicine, which Koch now directs.

Most recently, Houser and his team have explored ways to repair damaged heart tissue using cell therapyresearch that led to the discovery that bone-derived stem cells are better at regenerating heart tissue than the heart's own stem cells. His team's paper on that breakthrough, which was published online in June 2013 in Circulation Research, is now among the journal's most downloaded papers. Because of its success, Houser was invited to deliver a talk on the research at Scientific Sessions 2013.

The BCVS Distinguished Achievement Award and the Thomas W. Smith Memorial Lecture Award were given to Houser for his research accomplishments, but he has also devoted much time to the AHA. For 2013‒2014 he is Chairperson of the AHA Research Committee, which reviews, selects, and funds research grants, and is on the organization's Board of Directors.

Houser delivered the Thomas W. Smith Memorial Lecture the morning of Nov. 18.

In addition to directing Temple's Cardiovascular Research Center, Houser is Chairperson of the Department of Physiology, the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Physiolo
