Extract

I thank Richard S. Irwin, MD, Master FCCP, and Editor in Chief, CHEST, for offering me the opportunity to profile Jay A. Nadel, MD, a giant in chest medicine. Born in 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dr Nadel received his MD degree from Jefferson Medical College in 1953. During his internship and residency in cardiology at Philadelphia General Hospital (1953-1956), Dr Nadel met Julius Comroe, MD, who headed the Graduate School at the University of Pennsylvania. Subsequently, Dr Nadel spent 2 years in the US Air Force (Travis Air Force Base) near San Francisco, California, and Dr Comroe was recruited to head the Cardiovascular Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). In 1958, Dr Nadel was chosen to be Dr Comroe’s research fellow.
