Mayo Researcher on CBS


Michael Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D., appeared live on the CBS Morning show today to help tell the story of a young Michigan girl's senior prom and the promise he made prior to her heart transplant surgery here at Mayo Clinic ten years ago. [See the CBS segment] . While the story's been told on our Sharing Mayo Clinic blog, what isn't included is the fact that Dr. Ackerman is also an internationally recognized researcher and the discoverer of a gene linked to long Q-T syndrome, which can cause sudden death for young adults. His studies have resulted in knowledge that has already saved lives of many with this inherited condition.
