Professor Sharon Hunt is the 2012 recipient of the ISHLT Lifetime Achievement Award. She is recognized by the society for her relentless efforts to bring Heart Transplantation Medicine from its inception at Stanford to its current excellence, for her legacy in training and mentoring the many international leaders in our field, for her countless past and ongoing scientific contributions including spearheading the most comprehensive guidelines in heart failure and transplantation, and for her untiring service to the ISHLT as President, Chair of the JHLT Editor Search Committee, Co-Chair of the Heart Transplant International Guidelines Committee and, most recently, as Chair of the US-based ABIM certification board in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology (a certification that has legitimized the field in the US).

Please join us in recognizing Dr. Hunt for her many roles in heart transplantation medicine beginning with its birth at Stanford University and continuing today, as well as her ongoing contributions to the ISHLT. She will be honored during the Plenary Session: ISHLT Traditions on Thursday, April 19, 2012, from 9:45 - 11:30 AM.
