Cardiology Leader Cribier to Receive Corday Prize

Alain Cribier, MD

The Eliot Corday, MD, International Prize in Heart Research will be presented to Alain Cribier, MD, emeritus professor at the University of Rouen, France. The ceremony will take place Tuesday, April 7, at 4 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium.

The prize honors a physician or scientist who has conducted groundbreaking research leading to fundamental changes in the practice of cardiology or cardiac surgery.

For 20 years, Cribier has been chief of Cardiology at Hospital Charles Nicolle at the University of Rouen. He became widely recognized for having performed the first balloon aortic valvuloplasty for the treatment of calcific aortic stenosis in 1985, the first mitral commissurotomy with a reusable metallic device in 1996, and after 15 years of research, the first nonsurgical implantation of an aortic valve prosthesis in 2002.

The latter has become a breakthrough technology for patients who would be put at high risk by conventional surgery. More than 200,000 patients worldwide have been treated using the technique.

To attend the presentation, RSVP to Matthew Karimi-Pouia at 323-866-6231 or matthew.karimi-pouia@cshs.org.
