has set the benchmark to which we all aspire. His ground-breaking research in acute myocardial infarction and interventional pharmacology has directly benefitted millions of patients with cardiovascular disease.

"Dr. Topol's current work in personalized medicine and digital technology positions him as a leader in the movement to modernize medical treatment - creating new, more effective ways to treat patients," Dr. Leon added. "His ground-breaking research in cardiology and genomics has provided more treatment and prevention options for patients and transformed our understanding of how genetics can determine a person's risk of heart disease."

Dr. Topol is currently a Professor of Genomics at The Scripps Research Institute and Chief Academic Officer of Scripps Health in La Jolla, California. He also leads the flagship NIH supported Scripps Translational Science Institute and is a co-Founder and the Vice-Chairman of the West Wireless Health Institute.

Previously, Dr. Topol served as Chair of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, where his cardiovascular program was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as number one in the nation in patient care and research for 12 years. His upcoming book, The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care, which addresses the convergence of the digital revolution and medicine, will be released in January 2012.
