[Perspectives] Salim Yusuf: global leader in cardiovascular disease research

Salim Yusuf, Executive Director of the Population Health Research Institute and Professor of Medicine at McMaster University, does not have to worry about being low profile, as any search on Medline reveals hundreds of results. But this one-time doyen of clinical trials in cardiology has broadened his perspective in more recent times towards global epidemiological research, partly shaped by his curiosity about the high burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in his native India, which was a trigger for the seminal INTERHEART study, undertaken in 52 countries, and published in The Lancet in 2004.
