National Institute on Aging clinical director Dr. Darrell R. Abernethy recently received the Rawls-Palmer Award from the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics at its annual meeting in Los Angeles. The award supports a lectureship to provide continuing medical education in an effort to translate modern pharmacology research to patient care. A board-certified internist, clinical pharmacologist, and expert on the management of hypertension in the elderly, Abernethy leads NIA's expanded efforts to translate laboratory findings to clinical practice. His research focuses on the control of vascular tone by angiotensin, endothelin, calcium and their inhibitors.
