A cardiologist was recently named chairman of the Department of Medicine at UC Irvine's College of Medicine.

Dr. John C. Longhurst, who previously served as chief of cardiovascular medicine at the UC Davis School of Medicine for 11 years, will join UCI on Nov. 16. He will supervise clinical and academic programs.

Longhurst's research focuses on how the nervous system regulates the cardiovascular system and the nervous system's role in hypertension, irregular heartbeat, angina and acupuncture. The National Institutes of Health recently awarded him $2.9 million to look at how the nervous system regulates heart and lung function.

Longhurst also has conducted research on cardiovascular aspects of sports medicine.
