In addition to serving as the principal investigator of a number of clinical trials, Dr. Sievert has authored more than 200 manuscripts and 600 abstracts in peer reviewed journals, as well as 100 books and book contributions. He has also delivered more than 1,000 invited lectures around the world.

TCT Directors, Martin B. Leon, MD and Gregg W. Stone, MD jointly presented the award, which recognizes technical skill and expertise. Dr. Leon is the Founder of CRF and Professor of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Director of the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center.
