You should get a UCSF confirmation immediately, although it may take over a week for me to personally acknowledge your donation because of the time it takes for it to work its way through the system and for me to be notified.  If you never hear from me directly, then you will know the system did not notify me; please e-mail me in that case because I would not want you to go un-thanked! 

Thank you for your generosity!

The main areas of research underway in our laboratory currently include the study of how to improve an experimental heart attack treatment that has been less effective in clinical trials than in earlier mouse studies, and the study of how exposure to cigarette smoke (including secondhand smoke)rapidly causes temporary changes in blood vessels that may increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. 


If you encounter any trouble with this website or have questions, please e-mail Dr. Springer
