Dr. Julian Lombard Wins 2014 Eugene M. Landis Research Award

July 12, 2013

Julian H. Lombard, PhD, professor of physiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), has been named the 2014 recipient of the Eugene M. Landis Research Award, established by the Microcirculatory Society in 1969 to recognize an outstanding investigator in the field of microcirculation.

Dr. Lombard’s research focuses on the mechanisms behind vascular control in salt-sensitive hypertension, the role of oxygen in blood vessel constriction in hypertension, and vascular abnormalities associated with high levels of salt in the diet. Recently, his team discovered that high salt diet leads to severe dysfunctional changes in blood vessels even in the absence of an elevated blood pressure. In humans, dysfunctional changes in blood vessels similar to those observed in animals fed high salt diet have been shown to be associated with a variety of adverse cardiovascular outcomes including stroke, heart attack, the development of hypertension, and sudden cardiovascular death. A major goal of Dr. Lombard’s work is to determine the mechanisms by which elevated dietary salt intake leads to abnormal blood vessel function even before the development of hypertension.

Dr. Lombard earned his undergraduate degree in biological sciences at the University of Texas – El Paso, in 1969. He received his master of science in zoology and physiology from Arizona State University in 1971, and then earned his PhD from the Medical College of Wisconsin in physiology in 1974. After completing postdoctoral work at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, in 1977, he joined the MCW faculty.

A nationally respected researcher in his field, Dr. Lombard has been continually funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 30 years. He has published more than 100 papers and book chapters, and has mentored dozens of graduate students. He has served on NIH study sections and has edited numerous peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. Lombard will receive the award at the Society’s annual meeting in 2014.
