The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences has invited David W. Busija, Regents Professor and chair of the pharmacology department at Tulane University School of Medicine, to present his research and meet with the department’s faculty and graduate students.
Busija is scheduled to present “Mitochondrial Influences on the Cerebral Vasculature During Health and Disease," on Friday, Sept. 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Sudro Hall room 26. The seminar is open to anyone interested in pharmaceutical and biomedical research.
Busija’s research involves the mechanisms of control of the cerebral circulation and the mechanisms of cerebrovascular dysfunction associated with insulin resistance and ischemic stress. He has published more than 270 peer-reviewed papers and has presented numerous lectures.
Busija’s research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and he currently has four of the institute’s Research Project Grants. The institute’s records place Busija in the top 5 percent of the distribution of extramural grants during the past 25 years, when considering inflation of direct and indirect costs and excluding program project or center grants.
