The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation will bestow one of its highest honors on Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) principal investigator, Richard Casaburi, PhD, MD, at the association's annual meeting in Milwaukee.

In announcing the award, the association said it was recognizing Dr. Casaburi's "many outstanding contributions to cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation."

The association, comprised of health professionals in the field of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, is dedicated to reducing morbidity, mortality and disability from cardiovascular and pulmonary disease through education, prevention, rehabilitation, research and disease management.

"Congratulations to Dr. Casaburi for another milestone in his prestigious career in the field of respiratory research and pulmonary rehabilitation," said David I. Meyer, LA BioMed president and CEO. "Dr. Casaburi has led the way in developing new rehabilitation strategies for the millions suffering from respiratory disease.

At LA BioMed, Dr. Casaburi directs the Rehabilitation Clinical Trials Center, a facility dedicated to performing clinical research aimed at improving the lives of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.

In addition to his work at LA BioMed, Dr. Casaburi is associate chief for Research and professor of medicine in the Division of Respiratory and Critical Care Physiology and Medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. He is also director of Clinical Respiratory Physiology.
