Edwin Bierman Lectureship Award
This lecture is awarded in honor of the memory of Edwin L. Bierman, MD. Dr. Bierman was an exemplary scientist, mentor and leader in the field of diabetes, obesity, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis.
The award and lecture recognizes a leading scientist in the field of macrovascular complications and contributing risk factors in diabetes. Dr. Bierman is most notably remembered for his work on the physiologic and nutritional regulation of lipoprotein metabolism and the nature of lipid and lipoprotein disorders particularly in obesity and diabetes, and especially as these relate to atherosclerosis. He was also a pioneer using human cultured cells to study atherosclerosis. Dr.Bierman founded one of the leading journals in the area of atherosclerosis, namely Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, and had a major impact on our understanding of diabetes and macrovascular disease.
