Adviye Ergul named Fellow of American Heart Association

Adviye Ergul, an associate professor in clinical and administrative pharmacy, has been named a Fellow of the American Heart Association. Selection is based on academic accomplishments in hypertension research and service. Ergul was among eight scientists chosen this year.

Ergul’s research focuses on the role of endothelin, the most potent vasoconstrictor in the human body, in vascular complications associated with diabetes and hypertension. She has used animal models as well as human vascular tissue to explore how the structure of blood vessels changes during diabetes and high blood pressure.
