Thomas Uray Awarded Young Investigator of the Year at the ERC Congress

 

Thomas Uray, MD, MPH, a Safar Center postdoctoral research fellow visiting from the Medical University of Vienna who has been working with Cameron Dezfulian, MD since the fall 2012, was recently awarded the title of Young investigator of the Year at the European Resuscitation Council congress in Bilbao, Spain. He received the award for his project titled “Comparison of injury phenotype between ventricular fibrillation and asphyxial cardiac arrest in a rat model.”  His work builds on a classic study that was carried out originally by the late Dr. Peter Safar and his research team over a decade ago at the Safar Center. His work suggests the possibility that outcomes from cardiac arrest could be improved with phenotype-based therapy. Dr. Uray’s work is supported by the Laerdal Foundation and the Max Kade Foundation. Congratulations to Dr. Uray for this outstanding accomplishment.
