UTHSC Hosts Eric E. Muirhead Hypertension Research Day

The 2015 E. Eric Muirhead Hypertension Research Day, hosted by the Cardiovascular-Renal Center at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, will be held Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. in room A117 Coleman (956 Court Ave., Memphis, TN 38163).

Hypertension Research Day started in 1987 as a symposium honoring Dr. E. Eric Muirhead to commemorate his numerous contributions to hypertension research and the medical community. It has now grown into an annual special event.

The program provides leading information in cardiovascular research, stimulates collaboration between laboratories at UTHSC and the institutions of the guest speakers and leads to new ideas for research, treatment and drug design. This year, four outstanding speakers will present cutting-edge clinical and basic science lectures. Hypertension Research Day has been approved for Continuing Medical Education credit and is open to all health science professionals and students. Please contact Michelle Lester in the Department of Physiology at (901) 448-2634, mlester@uthsc.edu for more information.

 

Leonard Share Young Investigator Awards

The Leonard Share Young Investigator Awards will also be presented during the symposium, one to a clinical fellow (MD) engaged in either clinical or basic science research, and the other to a basic science fellow (PhD) with a maximum of two years postdoctoral research.

For Leonard Share Young Investigator Award application information, contact Michelle Lester in the Department of Physiology at (901) 448-2634, mlester@uthsc.edu.
