Los Angeles, March 19, 2012 -Two physicians from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute will receive the American College of Cardiology's highest honors for scientific research and clinical care during the organization's upcoming annual scientific meeting in Chicago.

Prediman K. Shah, MD, Director of the Cardiology Division, best known for his work to develop a mutant gene-based therapy for reversing arterial plaque as well as his research on a possible cholesterol vaccine against heart disease, will receive the Distinguished Scientist (Basic Domain) Award. C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, Director of the Women's Heart Center and a pioneer in identifying gender differences in heart disease, will receive the Distinguished Scientist (Clinical Domain) Award.

"It is a remarkable achievement for two of our faculty members to earn this honor in the same year," said Eduardo Marbn, MD, PhD, the Mark S. Siegel Family Professor and director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute. "For years, both Dr. Shah and Dr. Bairey Merz have been on the leading edge of cardiology and to have recognition of this magnitude by one's peers is the greatest honor for any doctor."
