The last Lucchesi Distinguished Lectureship was presented in 2015. Please refer to this webpage for future awards honoring Dr. Lucchesi.  

The Benedict R. Lucchesi Distinguished Lectureship in Cardiac Pharmacology was established to honor Dr. Lucchesi’s lifelong scientific contributions to our better understanding and appreciation of the pharmacological treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease and for his mentoring of countless prominent cardiovascular pharmacologists in translational approaches.

The Benedict R. Lucchesi Distinguished Lectureship was a biennial award, consisting of an honorarium of $1,000, a custom-designed crystal bowl depicting the named Lectureship, and up to $2,000 travel expenses including registration to the annual spring Experimental Biology meeting. A recipient was selected and invited to deliver a state-of-the-art lecture on recent advances in the field of cardiac pharmacology at a programming session sponsored by the Division for Cardiovascular Pharmacology of the ASPET. The presentation of his/her research was of broad interest and contributed to the growth and knowledge of the members of the Division.
