Date:6/22/2012

ious illness.”

Recognized worldwide as a leader in the science of pharmacogenomics, exploring genetic regulation and mechanisms in cardiovascular disease, Dr. Benza is the author of more than 80 scientific papers, abstracts and book chapters in his field. He has served as the principal investigator of dozens of cardiovascular and pulmonary hypertension clinical trials and has received significant funding for his scientific work from both the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart association.

Dr. Benza’s team at AGH will launch a new study this week at the PHA meeting that will investigate the role of specific proteins in pulmonary hypertension. The goal is to identify new biomarkers for the disease that will hopefully further advance the early diagnostic capabilities of physicians. Like many diseases, PH is managed most effectively when it is detected in its earliest stages.

“Dr. Benza’s compassion for patients and his endless determination to help improve and extend their lives through excellent clinical care and groundbreaking research is exemplary and inspiring,” said Jessica Lazar, MPA, PA-C, Director, Cardiology Quality and Education at AGH and one of two colleagues who joined Dr. Benza for his Mt. Kilimanjaro expedition.

In 2010, the Royal House of Savoy, an ancient knighthood established by the once royal family of Italy and sanctioned by the Vatican in the Middle Ages, made Dr. Benza a knight in recognition of his contributions to medicine. The honor is given to those who demonstrate eminence in public service, science, art and charitable works.

Active in many of his field’s professional and scientific associations, Dr. Benza has held numerous key national leadership positions, including the Scientific Leadership Council of the PHA, Thoracic Organ Committee of United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), and the Board of Directors of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation.
