ASC Processes Alvin P. Shapiro Papers

The Archives Service Center recently processed the papers of Dr. Alvin Shapiro, a faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh's medical school (1956-1998). He concentrated his research on hypertension, clinical pharmacology, and psychosomatic response with particular focus on the links between hypertension and stress, as well as renal function and hypertension related to systemic scleroderma. He was very active in the administration of the University of Pittsburgh's Medical School as well as Presbyterian University Hospital. Notably, he headed the study section of the Hypertension Detection and Follow-up Program, which produced the first large-scale study of hypertension.
