Kerry M. Link, MD, MBA, FACC, FAHA, Professor
A classically trained cardiovascular radiologist, Dr. Kerry Link joined the faculty at Wake Forest School of Medicine in 1987. He worked primarily in coronary angiography, pediatric heart catheterizations, and cardiac MRI. In 1995, he won the Fulbright Fellowship in Medicine for his work in coronary artery flow measurements. As a fellow, he studied coronary artery physiology at the Royal Brompton Cardiac MRI Center in London, England. In 1997, he started the first cardiac MRI service in conjunction with cardiology, with an emphasis on ischemic heart disease. In 2000, recognizing the tremendous importance of imaging, not just in clinical diagnosis, but in clinical and basic science research, he gathered the resources to put in place a dedicated imaging research facility. What started as a small endeavor has grown into an institutional center, the Center for Biomolecular Imaging.
