Dr. Spencer B. King, III, professor at the School of Medicine, Emory University Emeritus College, US, was recognized as the 5th recipient of the TCTAP 2015 Award ‘Master of the Masters’ held on Wednesday, April 29 at the Main Arena.
Since 2011, CardioVascular Summit-TCTAP has bestowed the “Master of the Masters” award upon one person out of the many outstanding teachers and dedicators who have made remarkable contributions to the field of interventional cardiology and to the growth of TCTAP. The organizing committee of TCTAP agreed unanimously to present this award to Dr. Spencer B. King, III, for his excellent expertise in this field and significant contributions to this meeting as a member of the advisory committee.
Dr. King is well known as a world leader who has shepherded the development of interventional cardiology. Since starting his cardiology career at Emory University, he has developed a multi-purpose technique for coronary arteriography with Fred Schoonmaker and helped facilitate his partner’s, Andreas Gruentzig, career by refining angioplasty, establishing a large database, publishing multi-center clinical trials, and mounting courses that included live televised case demonstrations. He also has been principle the investigator of 15 national and international trials, including the first NIH-sponsored trial that compared angioplasty with bypass surgery. In addition, Dr. King is a passionate researcher and author of over 500 papers. Through this unremitting endeavor and his profound insight, he has continued his commitment as the editor-in-chief of JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
His old colleague, Dr. David Holmes, said, “He is a great individual and a tireless worker in the field of interventional cardiology, education, science, and in the field of research.” As a vigorous leader and teacher, Dr. King will continue his journey for growth in the field of interventional cardiology, a field of rapid advances and technical innovations.
