Loma Linda University Department of Physiology and Pharmacology welcomed Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Ca., on Thursday. Lewis was led on a tour of the neuroscience and biochemistry laboratories by department professor Dr. John Zhang to see the active joint efforts of clinical and basic neuroscientists at LLU. Their research has helped enhance physician training, improve patient care and power local science, health, and economic growths.

“The neuroscience program is a fabulous example of why Loma Linda University is one of the cutting-edge research programs, not only in Southern California, but in the nation,” Lewis said after the tour. “I join all of my constituents in expressing pride and gratitude that we have this wonderful research and teaching institution in our midst. I look forward to my next visit to see what new breakthroughs they have made in extending lives and improving the health of all Americans.”
