K. Lance Gould, MD, professor of cardiology and Martin Bucksbaum Distinguished University Chair in the Department of Internal Medicine, will present the next installment of the 2023 Dean’s Lecture Series, at 4 p.m., Dec. 5 in MSB 3.001.

Gould will present on “Prevention, intervention, and physiology versus anatomy in randomized trials of coronary artery disease.”

Gould is a clinical coronary physiologist and cardiologist who pioneered the discovery, reporting, and development of over 53 years of fundamental concepts in coronary pathophysiology and translated them into the core knowledge of current clinical coronary pathophysiology to guide management of CAD. His studies of coronary stenosis established the basis for, and evolved to clinical proof and now wide application, comprising the comprehensive knowledge base of current  clinical coronary pathophysiology used in cardiology worldwide.

Gould earned his bachelor’s degree in physics from Oberlin College after graduating from McCally Military Academy. He received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve Medical School before completing residency at the University of Washington followed by two years in the Epidemic Intelligence Serviced, based in Hawaii, and covering the South Pacific while focusing on leprosy and measles in island populations. After returning to Seattle to train in cardiology, he joined the faculty at McGovern Medical School in 1979.

Gould received the International George von Hevesy Prize for Research in 1978 and the George E. Brown Memorial Lectureship of the American Heart Association in 1990, as well as numerous teaching awards in both basic science and clinical cardiology. He has been honored nationally by membership in the Association of American Physicians, the American Society of Clinical Investigation, and the Board of Trustees of the American College of Cardiology.

The Dean’s Lecture Series at McGovern Medical School was established in 1983 to promote and encourage professional development and spark collaborative interest. Sponsored by the Research Committee, the lecture invites eminent scientists across various scientific disciplines to present their work. Lecture topics range from basic science research to patient care topics.
