Roberto Bolli, M.D. is director of the Division of Cardiology and U of L%u2019s Institute for Molecular Cardiology and a member of the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute. He is also Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Medicine. His research focuses on preventing the damage caused during heart attacks by studying ischemic preconditioning, the phenomenon in which heart muscle exposed to brief periods of stress becomes resistant to the tissue death that might be caused by a heart attack. He is investigating the use of adult cardiac stem cells to repair dead heart tissue, pioneering the use of stem cells taken from the patient for potential heart repair applications. Bolli is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the Basic Research Prize of the American Heart Association (2001), the MERIT Award from the NIH (2001), the Research Achievement Award from the International Society for Heart Research (2004), the Lucian Award from McGill University (2004), the Ken Bowman Award from the University of Manitoba, and the Howard Morgan Award from the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences. He has published more than 270 peer-reviewed articles. Bolli earned his medical degree at the University of Perugia in Italy and was a cardiology research fellow at the NIH. Prior to joining U of L, he was a professor of cardiology at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston
