Renowned researcher to lead transformative institute

A new initiative in translational research at Case Western Reserve University Department of Medicine and University Hospitals promises to catalyze scientific discoveries, formulate new therapies and inspire the next generation of physician-scientists.

Leading the effort will be one of the school’s newest additions: Jonathan S. Stamler, MD, who will serve as founding director of the Institute for Transformative Molecular Medicine. Dr. Stamler is also the first to hold the Robert S. and Sylvia K. Reitman Family Foundation Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Innovation at the Case Cardiovascular Center and University Hospitals Harrington-McLaughlin Heart & Vascular Institute.

“This newly established chair in cardiovascular investigation and its relationship to the Institute for Transformative Molecular Medicine will accelerate our scientific research to its full potential and provide new cures and therapies for the patients we serve,” says Richard A. Walsh, MD, physician-in-chief at University Hospitals and the John H. Hord Professor and chair of the Department of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University.
