Robert LawsonROBERT B. LAWSON
Professor of Psychology Emeritus

I have been very blessed to have a long run of 44 years as a faculty member and academic administrator at UVM. I have learned a great deal from my undergraduate and graduate students, and from a wide variety of faculty drawn from all corners of the University of Vermont. In my teaching, research and academic administrative programs, my actions, thoughts, and ideas have been guided by two principles, namely “Chance favors the optimist because the pessimist is unlikely to take a chance” and it is critical “To think logically and act compassionately.”

Timothy MuradTIMOTHY MURAD
Associate Professor of Spanish Emerita

“For nearly four decades I have been privileged to live my academic life in a department that is ever-changing yet still rooted in its core commitment to literature and language. I have been sustained in that long journey by the company of good colleagues. In the classroom, my most wondrous moments have come when students have taught me to perceive things I never imagined. Little did I suspect that many years later, at the journey’s end, I would remember with such delight its remote beginning. Now, counseled by Fray Luis de León, one of Spain’s finest lyric poets of the 16th century, it is time to follow life’s escondida senda.”

Kenneth BrownKENNETH A. BROWN
Professor of Medicine Emeritus

“I have always believed in the value of the Socratic method, asking trainees how they would manage a clinical issue and why, rather than just tell them the answer.  I have always felt that if trainees thought it through for themselves they would retain the information better than trying to remember the answer that their teacher told them.”

— Kenneth A. Brown, M.D.

Education:  A.B., 1973, Rutgers College; M.D., 1977, Cornell University Medical College.

UVM Career:  Assistant Professor of Medicine and Radiology, 1984-1990; Associate Professor of Medicine, 1990-1996; Professor of Medicine, 1996-present.

Key Scholarly Interests: The use of noninvasive cardiac imaging to predict future cardiac events.  Examination of the relationship of stress-induced myocardial ischemia (presence and extent) and the risk of future cardiac death or myocardial infarction.

Publication Highlights:
103 total publications:  56 original articles; 14 editorials; 21 review articles; 12 book chapters. 

Published the first article (1983) to show that nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging not only detects the presence of coronary artery disease but also has prognostic value based on the presence and extent of exercise-induced ischemia. This approach fundamentally changed the way stress nuclear cardiac imaging is used and the way cardiac patients are assessed for risk.

Published the first article (1990) to show that vasodilator stress nuclear cardiac imaging could be safety performed very early following an acute myocardial infarction (MI) and that such prognostic information was superior to standard post-MI treadmill testing. Thus noninvasive risk-stratification and decisions about invasive and surgical procedures could be made very early after acute myocardial infarction, thereby preventing early and late cardiac events.

Published a review article that became the state-of-the-art summary of the prognostic value of nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging for a decade.

Teaching/Research/Memberships Highlights:  A member of the original conspiratorial core group that broke away from the Society of Nuclear Medicine to create the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, which has become the leading international professional organization for the advancement of nuclear cardiology as a professional specialty.

Original member of the group that created and established the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology, 1996; active member of the Board of Directors, 2004-present.

Active member of the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association, serving on 2 joint writing committees that established the standards of practice for stress testing and the preoperative cardiac evaluation of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery.

Invited speaker, chairman or moderator at many national and international scientific meetings including the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, Society of Nuclear Medicine, International Conference of Nuclear Cardiology, Argentine Congress of Cardiology, Argentine Society of Nuclear Cardiology, Telemedicine Canada, University of Halifax, Visiting Professor of University of Toronto, University of Wisconsin, Cessena, Italy, Caprile, Italy,

Arthur LevyARTHUR M. LEVY
Professor of Medicine Emerita

“Three years after being hired to the faculty at UVM, I applied for and received a five year teaching scholarship from the American Heart Association. This led to a lifetime of a program intended to move emerging knowledge in the field from the bench to the bedside including monthly teaching clinics in hospitals in Upstate New York, a program designed to provide continuing education for cardiac nurses in Vermont and New Hampshire, and an annual national/international teaching conference which continued for 25 years. In addition, my lifelong interest in diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias led to the opening at MCHV (1975) of the first Clinical Electrophysiology Lab in New England – now recognized as one of the elite Electrophysiology services in the world.”
