Said, MD, Distinguished Professor at Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York and former Chief of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Division and Associate Chief of Staff for Research at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Northport, New York, was just as passionate about his research in pulmonary circulation and pulmonary vascular pathobiology as he had ever been.
