Professor , has been elected vice-president of the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience (ISAN). The appointment – which was given in recognition of Dr. Pavlov’s efforts in – was presented last month at the organization’s 11th Congress in Los Angeles, CA.
“I am honored to join the executive committee of ISAN as vice-president and to represent the Feinstein Institutes,” said Dr. Pavlov. “The society is a leading institution in promoting neuroscience dialogue and research dissemination.”
Dr. Pavlov is a professor at the Feinstein Institutes’ . He is also a professor at the Department of Molecular Medicine, . His current research focus is in bioelectronic medicine, and more specifically, on the role of the brain and the vagus nerve in the regulation of inflammation and metabolism in sepsis and obesity-driven disorders.
Bioelectronic medicine uses device technology to read and modulate the electrical activity within the body’s nervous system, opening new doors to real-time diagnostics and treatment options for patients.
“Dr. Pavlov has helped make the Feinstein Institutes the global scientific home of bioelectronic medicine, and it is exciting to see his efforts recognized by the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience,” said , president and CEO of the Feinstein Institutes.
Last month, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press published a book coedited by Drs. Pavlov and Tracey, entitled “Bioelectronic Medicine.” The book is a subject collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine, which is an anthology of articles about the new precision science of bioelectronic medicine.
