A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Andre Terzic

Andre Terzic, M.D., Ph.D., has pioneered regenerative medicine at Mayo Clinic. He has authored more than 450 publications, advancing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for heart failure. His works include team-science efforts in the discovery of genes for dilated cardiomyopathy and atrial fibrillation. He led efforts in the development of next-generation regenerative solutions, including first-in-class products for heart repair. His scientific manuscripts have been cited more than 10,000 times.

.

Dr. Terzic is Michael S. and Mary Sue Shannon Director, Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine, and Marriott Family Professor in Cardiovascular Diseases Research. He is professor of medicine and pharmacology; chair, Discovery-Translation Advisory Board; director, Marriott Heart Disease Research Program; director, National Institutes of Health Cardiovasology Program; and serves on the board of directors, Mayo Collaborative Services.

Focus areas

  • Regenerative medicine and stem cell biology
  • Cardioprotection
  • Heart failure
  • Genetics of cardiac disease and stress tolerance
  • Bioenergetic signaling, nucleocytoplasmic communication and ion channel biology

Significance to patient care

Dr. Terzic's program capitalizes on emerging technologies to transform therapeutic modalities from palliative measures to cures. In particular, the ability to early detect for each individual the defining genetic and metabolic basis of disease risk and to personalize treatment by targeted drug- or stem cell-based repair has advanced the cardiovascular therapeutic armamentarium. Specific contributions include advancing the development of safer cardioplegia, improved drug selection in patients who have diabetes, and refinement of diagnostic and management strategies for heart failure and ischemic heart disease, prevalent in the aging population.

The Christian Heritage of Kosovo and Metohija

THE HISTORICAL AND SPIRITUAL HEARTLAND OF THE SERBIAN PEOPLE

Published by: Sebastian Press, Los Angeles. Co-publishers: Institute for Balkan Studies, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Belgrade • The Episcopal Council of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America • Faculty of Orthodox Theology, University of Belgrade • BLAGO Fund • Serbica Americana • Interklima-grafika, Vrnjci

“This book on Serbia’s Christian Heritage in Kosovo and Metohija, its heartland in medieval times and through Ottoman domination, is intended to introduce to a wide reading public the oldest and richest treasury of Serbian medieval history and culture. Its authors are leading specialists in the fields in which they write, so readers may place complete reliance on the factual accuracy of the material.”

“The editor and publisher have the fervent hope that today’s peoples in Kosovo and Metohija will be able to begin their discussions not from what divides them but from what unites them, emphasizing in positive and constructive ways the areas in which a Serbo-Albanian ethnic symbiosis has existed. This book invites all to consider their differences in the light of history and of the future.”
