Philips names winner of American Heart Association-Philips Resuscitation Fellowship Award

Philips Medical Systems : 02 November, 2007  (New Product)
Philips has selected Dr Zeng-Jin Yang as the first annual winner of the American Heart Association-Philips Resuscitation Fellowship Award.
Dr Zeng-Jin Yang is a research fellow at the department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

The Fellowship, which is funded by a grant from Philips, encourages young investigators in the early stages of their careers to pursue basic and clinical research related to resuscitation, and provides $100,000 over a two-year period to help fund this research. The American Heart Association selected Dr Yang based on the merits of his research proposal and its applicability to the field of resuscitation.

“I am honoured to receive recognition and support from both the American Heart Association and Philips at this early stage of my research,” said Dr Yang. “The field of resuscitation will be driven forward by technological breakthroughs and by advances in medical science, and the Fellowship will allow me to do my part to advance this field of study.”

Dr Yang’s research will allow scientists to better understand potential mechanisms of newborn brain cell damage that often occurs due to a lack of oxygen, which may be related to an event such as cardiac arrest. This research could help lead to the development of treatments to prevent such damage from occurring.

“We are pleased to demonstrate Dr Yang’s innovative research and look forward to seeing the results of his important work,” said Michael Miller, senior vice president of Cardiac Care for Philips Medical Systems. “As a leader in resuscitation, we believe in supporting pioneering studies that may provide insights into the most effective ways to deliver resuscitation and ultimately lead to saving more lives.”

Dr Yang will be recognised at an awards luncheon taking place at the American Heart Association’s annual Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) on November 3, 2007 in Orlando, Florida, USA. This meeting is held each year in conjunction with the association’s Scientific Sessions.
