About the Serial Volume Editors

William Campbell

William B. Campbell, PhD, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical College of Wisconsin received his PhD from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas. After post-doctoral work and another year as an instructor at the Medical College of Wisconsin he moved to the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where he would eventually become full Professor of Pharmacology. In 1992 he became Chair of Pharmacology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. For the past 30 years, Dr. Campbell has been investigating the contribution of various vasoactive agents that regulate blood pressure. His studies on endothelium-derived factors that regulate blood pressure and vascular tone identified the major vasoactive metabolites of arachidonic acid that are produced by the vascular endothelium. He has consistently made major contributions in research, teaching and service to various institutions and to the scientific community in general. Dr. Campbell has received numerous awards for his research including the Research Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health. In 2006, he received the Novartis Award for Hypertension Research, the most prestigious award in the world in the area of hypertension research. He has received the Outstanding Mentor and Teaching Award from the Medical College of Wisconsin.
