The Origin and Advancement of Cardiovascular Physiology in Brazil: The Contribution of Eduardo Krieger to Research Groups.

Vasquez EC - Front Physiol (2016)

Bottom Line: Therefore, as Frontiers in Physiology is publishing a topic devoted to the celebration of the 20th edition of the Brazilian Symposium of Cardiovascular Physiology, it is a great opportunity to talk about the contributions of Eduardo Krieger to the development of cardiovascular physiology.In this historical mini-review, first, the influence of the Argentinian group of Bernardo Houssay and Braun Menéndez on cardiovascular physiology in Brazil is discussed.Finally, the origin and consolidation of the group of Vitoria is highlighted as an example of a research group that was influenced by the University of Sao Paulo-Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto and has trained hundreds of Master and Ph.D. students in the area of cardiovascular research.

ABSTRACT
Since 1996, symposia devoted to the discussion of advances in cardiovascular physiology have been alternately organized by Brazilian research groups, most of which were created or joined by Ph.D. trainees of Eduardo M Krieger. Therefore, as Frontiers in Physiology is publishing a topic devoted to the celebration of the 20th edition of the Brazilian Symposium of Cardiovascular Physiology, it is a great opportunity to talk about the contributions of Eduardo Krieger to the development of cardiovascular physiology. In this historical mini-review, first, the influence of the Argentinian group of Bernardo Houssay and Braun Menéndez on cardiovascular physiology in Brazil is discussed. Second, the contribution of Eduardo Krieger to the creation of several of those groups and to the development of science and technology is reviewed. Finally, the origin and consolidation of the group of Vitoria is highlighted as an example of a research group that was influenced by the University of Sao Paulo-Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto and has trained hundreds of Master and Ph.D. students in the area of cardiovascular research.

The Argentinian group of cardiovascular physiology (1940). Taquini (a), Braun Menéndez, co-discoverer of angiotensin (b), Houssay (c), and Leloir (d), the two Nobel Prize laureates. The master of Brazilian cardiovascular physiology and hypertension, Eduardo Krieger (e), and his disciple Elisardo Vasquez (f) (2014).

Figure 1: The Argentinian group of cardiovascular physiology (1940). Taquini (a), Braun Menéndez, co-discoverer of angiotensin (b), Houssay (c), and Leloir (d), the two Nobel Prize laureates. The master of Brazilian cardiovascular physiology and hypertension, Eduardo Krieger (e), and his disciple Elisardo Vasquez (f) (2014).

Mentions: This mini-review encompasses the point of view of a senior investigator in cardiovascular physiology who received his Ph.D. research training from Eduardo Krieger (Figures 1e,f) at the University of Sao Paulo-Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto (FMRP-USP), focused on the contribution of his master and the FMRP-USP to the creation of various research groups in cardiovascular physiology. Moreover, our knowledge of the beginning of cardiovascular physiology research in Brazil comes from the chair of the Department of Physiology of the FMRP-USP, Miguel R. Covian, who created a group of eight Ph.D. students interested in philosophy and to talk about science and scientists, including the fascinating history of Bernardo Houssay's leadership. This mini-review is consistent with a philosophical phrase I use, “in our life and science, as much as we know where we came from, as much as we will be able to decide where to go.”
