Conversation with "The Father of Modern Cardiology" Dr. Eugene Braunwald
Dr. Eugene Braunwald from Harvard Medical School is interviewed by JCI's Editor-at-Large Dr. Ushma Neill, for the Conversations with Giants in Medicine video series.
Dr Braunwald is often been called the Father of Modern Cardiology. Science Watch has listed him as the most frequently cited author in cardiology and beyond the numerous awards and 20 honorary degrees, he was the first cardiologist elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Nobel Prize winners in medicine have named Braunwald as the person who has contributed the most to cardiology in recent years. He speaks today about his trajectory from Nazi-occupied Austria through his immigrant struggle in NYC to land as the Chairman of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
