Rebecca Haeusler Receives 2022 ATVB Special Recognition Award

December 7, 2022

We are pleased to announce that Rebecca Haeusler, PhD, associate professor of Pathology and Cell Biology, was recently selected to receive the ATVB Special Recognition Award in Vascular Biology by the American Heart Association’s Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB). Dr. Haeusler received the award at the organization’s 2022 Scientific Sessions.

The Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) established the Special Recognition Award in 1981 to recognize council members who have made significant contributions to the council as well as the fields of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology.

The Council's Nominated Committee selects one person from each field (Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology) to receive the ATVB Special Recognition Award. The award is presented annually during the ATVB Business Meeting and Awards Reception at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions.

Dr. Haeusler received this award in recognition of her outstanding research on lipoprotein and cholesterol metabolism. Her laboratory’s contributions to the field have included important findings, published in leading journals, on how insulin signaling and insulin resistance regulate these processes.

Congratulations to Dr. Haeusler!
