Allyn Mark, MD, has received what is widely considered the premier award in hypertension research: the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Excellence Award for Hypertension Research. Mark is a professor of internal medicine–cardiovascular medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, whose research has explored the roles of the brain and sympathetic nervous system in controlling blood pressure.

He was honored on Sept. 16 at the AHA Council on Hypertension in San Francisco, in a joint session with the Council on Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease and the American Society of Hypertension.

Mark gave remarks at the awards dinner and also presented his research: “Microneurographic studies of sympathetic neural mechanisms in human hypertension.”
