David Rae Harder
Professor of Physiology
Medicine & Pediatrics
Director for Mentoring-CTSI
Medical College of Wisconsin
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Short biography

Dr. David Rae Harder began his scientific career at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) where he completed his PhD degree in the Department of Biophysics in 1976. After a brief post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, he joined East Tennessee University as an Assistant Professor of Physiology. During this period, he made his first seminal discovery in cardiovascular biology (Harder and Coulson, 1979). He identified functional estrogen receptors on vascular smooth muscle of the coronary artery, and demonstrated its role in modifying inward Ca2+ current in coronary arterial smooth muscle and control of blood flow to the heart. This was a major contribution to our understanding of coronary physiology and explains some of the differences between gender and cardiac function. In 1983, he was recruited back to MCW as an Associate Professor in Neurology and Physiology and quickly became the Director of Neurology Research at MCW. During this period, he made his second seminal discovery, which was the underlying mechanism associated with blood flow autoregulation (Harder, 1984). This paper is a citation classic and has been largely responsible for our understanding of the mechanism of blood flow autoregulation in the brain, kidney and other vascular beds. These organs are knownto maintain a relatively constant blood flow despite large changes in arterial pressure. Importantly, this work has stood the test of time, and has been confirmed by several leading laboratories across the world. The discovery has spawned mechanistic studies into the second messenger systems involved such as DAG, PKC, 20-HETE and other metabolites of poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). In addition, this work has initiated many tangential studies defining the role of membrane stretch in triggering this response. Studies are still being performed in defining mechanisms triggering this response including TRP channels, Ca2+ influx, Na-H exchange and numerous other signaling events (Roman, 2002). He received the AHA established investigator award for this work, and was chosen for the Veterans Administration Research Career Scientist Award. In 1987, he was elected to the Royal Society of Medicine in London, and was promoted to full Professor with tenure in the Department of Physiology at MCW. Perhaps, his most prolific work was yet to come in hindsight since his trajectory over the next five years was simply put, 'meteoric'. In 1990, he received the Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) award from NIH, which is given to select individuals with outstanding track records of sustained funding. Within two years, he became the founding director of the Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) at the MCW. At that time, the Center was the first of its kind in the school, and Dr. Harder again blazed the trails for others to follow in the school. At present several centers in the school are modeled after the CVRC, and during Dr. Harder's tenure the CVC had gained worldwide reputation as a premier cardiovascular research enterprise. During this period, he made a third seminal discovery where he identified epoxicoicosatrienoic acids (EETs), products of arachidonic acid metabolism were potent inducers of angiogenesis (Zhang and Harder, 2002). This finding unleashed the potential use of EETs for ischemic related stroke prevention, and has greatly contributed to our understanding of the role of the EETs in the regulation of the vascular reactivity in health and disease(Campbell et al., 1996; Fisslthaler et al., 1999). Most, if not all, of his findings have been published in high impact journals like Nature, Circulation Research and Stroke. From 1999-2004, he served as the Editor in Chief for the American Journal of Physiology, Heart and Circulation, and chaired the AHA publications committee. He was also elected as fellow in the AHA council for high blood pressure research and council on circulation. His EETs work, especially the analgesic effect finding of 14,15-EETs, has led to the development of anti-pain drugs devoid of addiction (Terashvili et al., 2008). He singlehandedly drove the development of this anti-pain drug, which has now cleared Phase I studies in the clinic. This remarkable achievement was done at a time when translational research was not the focus of NIH. It again shows how far ahead Dr. Harder was of his times. Subsequent studies (Terashvili et al., 2012) from his lab have revealed the translational aspect of his work with direct impact on health outcome. Dr. Harder is an institutional leader whose opinion and time is highly valued. He currently serves as the Associate Dean for Mentoring at MCW, and is the Director of Mentoring, CTSI at MCW. He takes his mentoring responsibilities seriously and is highly generous with his time. He also wants to disseminate knowledge to others, and help others whenever possible. This is highlighted by the Course in Grant Writing that he directs for CTSI each year. He has instituted several initiatives on campus that have taken one shape or another, and helped many individuals at different levels in the institution. He is highly respected, and regarded, and shows the rare combination of class and brilliance. Finally, we will highlight his latest research that continues to make waves. In the last 2-3 years, Dr. Harder and Dr. Ramani Ramchandran, PhD (Professor, Pediatrics, Division of Development Biology, Patrick J. and Margaret G. McMahon Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vice Chair for Research, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology- MCW) have interacted at a peer level due to their mutual interests in solving big questions in biology. Dr. Harder introduced Dr. Ramchandran to astrocytes, the glia cell in the brain, which is the focus of his cerebral autoregulation work. Dr. Ramchandran is a vascular biologist by training with deep interest in its application to disease. When Dr. Harder mentioned astrocytes, Dr. Ramchandran was intrigued, and over the course of meetings, they came up with testable ideas. They hypothesized that astrocytes were not reactionary to tumor cells like most believed but rather that they have properties that induce tumor cells to grow, proliferate and migrate to distant sites. Indeed, they had identified that neonatal astrocytes secrete proteins that make breast, lung and sarcoma tumor cells highly metastatic in vivo and in vitro (Wang et al., 2013). This work is now beginning to provide glimpses into the biology of metastasis, which was previously unappreciated. Once again, Dr. Harder finds himself in the middle of a novel landmark discovery in biology. Even now, Dr. Harder continues to maintain active NIH funding, and his ability to keep sustained funding for the last 35 plus years of research is truly a feat in itself.
