Author Biography

Ronald J. Korthuis, PhD, is the George L. and Melna A. Bolm Distinguished Professor in Cardiovascular Health and the Head of the Department of Medical Pharmacology and Physiology in the College of Medicine at the University of Missouri. After receipt of his PhD degree in Cardiovascular Physiology from Michigan State University in 1983, Dr. Korthuis joined the laboratories of Drs. Aubrey E. Taylor and D. Neil Granger as a Parker B. Francis Fellow. After this postdoctoral training, he joined the faculty at the University of Missouri in 1985, where he was supported by an NIH New Investigator Research Award. In 1987, Dr. Korthuis moved to the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center-Shreveport, where he served as the Vice Chair of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology and as the Assistant Dean for the School of Graduate Studies. At LSUHSC, Dr. Korthuis was awarded an Established Investigatorship from the American Heart Association and received the Dr. Allen A. Copping Award for Excellence in Teaching. Since returning to the University of Missouri, he received the Gold Chalk Award for Dedication and Service to the Advancement of Graduate Student Education and was elected to the Order of Socrates for Excellence in Medical Education and to the Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society. Dr. Korthuis has served as a regular member on three grant peer review committees for the NIH, is appointed to several Editorial boards for scientific journals, and is very active in programmatic activities for the American Physiological Society. His major research interests relate to understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of ischemia/reperfusion-induced injury in the microcirculation and how postischemic microvascular dysfunction can be reduced by preconditioning with pharmacologic agents. Dr. Korthuis has published nearly 175 papers, book chapters, and review articles. He is also an author on another book in this series, which is entitled Capillary Fluid Filtration.
