When Robert O. Bonow, MD, professor of cardiology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, joined the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in 1976 as a clinical associate shortly after completing his residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, he assumed he would be there for only a few years. But the intrigue of cardiovascular research and encouragement from his mentors kept him at the institute for 16 years, where he served as a senior investigator and deputy chief of cardiology, delving deeply into the mechanisms of and therapies for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and valvular disease.
