Guest speaker Marc Pfeffer, ’69, Ph.D., MD
Wednesday, March 6,
4 p.m., Maddox Theatre, Clark Arts Center

Dr. Marc A. Pfeffer, graduated from Rockford College in 1969. He went on to receive both his doctorate in physiology and biophysics and his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City. He completed his internship, residency and clinical fellowship at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston, and is currently the Dzau Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and physician in the Cardiology Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Pfeffer has distinguished himself as a translational investigator. Along with his late wife, Dr. Janice Pfeffer ’69, and Eugene Braunwald, M.D., their studies in an experimental model of myocardial infarction first introduced the concept of an insidious deleterious structural remodeling of the impaired ventricle. Pfeffer led the first definitive clinical trial demonstrating that a certain structural remodeling could prolong survival and prevent the development of heart failure, which has improved the prognosis of untold numbers of survivors of myocardial infarction.
