Late last week his first article was published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

The American Heart Association Website on Dr. Vivien Thomas:
"The Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award acknowledges the accomplishments of early career investigator members of the CVSA Council who are focusing on fundamental and applied surgical research.
The award is named in honor of Vivien T. Thomas, a key player in pioneering the anastomosis of the subclavian artery to the pulmonary artery. The surgical work he performed with Dr. Alfred Blalock paved the way for the successful outcome of the Blalock-Taussig shunt in 1944.
Five Thomas Award finalists will be honored and a winner will be named at the annual CVSA Council Dinner at the AHA Scientific Sessions."
