A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!
- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Andre Terzic

Andre Terzic, M.D., Ph.D., has pioneered regenerative medicine at Mayo Clinic. He has authored more than 450 publications, advancing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for heart failure. His works include team-science efforts in the discovery of genes for dilated cardiomyopathy and atrial fibrillation. He led efforts in the development of next-generation regenerative solutions, including first-in-class products for heart repair. His scientific manuscripts have been cited more than 10,000 times.

.

Dr. Terzic is Michael S. and Mary Sue Shannon Director, Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine, and Marriott Family Professor in Cardiovascular Diseases Research. He is professor of medicine and pharmacology; chair, Discovery-Translation Advisory Board; director, Marriott Heart Disease Research Program; director, National Institutes of Health Cardiovasology Program; and serves on the board of directors, Mayo Collaborative Services.

Focus areas

  • Regenerative medicine and stem cell biology
  • Cardioprotection
  • Heart failure
  • Genetics of cardiac disease and stress tolerance
  • Bioenergetic signaling, nucleocytoplasmic communication and ion channel biology

Significance to patient care

Dr. Terzic's program capitalizes on emerging technologies to transform therapeutic modalities from palliative measures to cures. In particular, the ability to early detect for each individual the defining genetic and metabolic basis of disease risk and to personalize treatment by targeted drug- or stem cell-based repair has advanced the cardiovascular therapeutic armamentarium. Specific contributions include advancing the development of safer cardioplegia, improved drug selection in patients who have diabetes, and refinement of diagnostic and management strategies for heart failure and ischemic heart disease, prevalent in the aging population.

Western American Diocese - Annual 2013

2013 marked several momentous occasions: 50 years of the founding of the Western American Diocese, 150 years of the birth of Archimandrite Sebastian Dabovich, Holy Apostle to the Americas, 1700 years of the Edict of Milan, and a special tribute to Nikola Tesla! Our main focus during this three-day Jubilee Celebration was on the freedom to pursue our faith since the time of Constantine 1700 years ago and how to better live a spiritual life.

As a special tribute, a beautiful commemorative edition of the Annual was prepared, which reflects the History of the Western American Diocese! It is adorned with beautiful photographs and historical articles from our parishes and monateries! It also showcases the wonderful work that has been done over the past year throughout our Diocese and information about our many ongoing ministries. This publicaton also includes a Directory of Parishes.

There are two version of this publication available. Our Hardcover version sells for $15. Our Softcover version sells for $10 and includes Ads & Greetings from families and businesses throughout our Diocese.
