Stephen Chan, a professor in Pitt’s School of Medicine, was elected for induction into the Association of University Cardiologists (AUC).
Members of the AUC represent the top investigators in American cardiology. Active membership is limited to 135 academics, who are elected to join the association by their peers.
Chan is the Vitalant Chair in Vascular Medicine and directs Pitt’s Vascular Medicine Institute, where he leads an interdisciplinary team of scientists in basic and translational vascular biology research. As director of the Center for Pulmonary Vascular Biology and Medicine, he also treats patients and conducts research on the molecular mechanisms of pulmonary vascular disease and pulmonary hypertension.
The AUC will introduce Chan as a new member at its annual meeting in February, and the Pitt professor will give a talk as part of the organization’s commitment to education and scientific interchange.
