Dr. Richard Haslam joined the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine in 1972 following a visiting professorship here.  He conducted research in the area of signal transduction, including the roles of GTP-binding proteins, phosopholipases, protein kinases and cyclic nucleotides in the regulation of cell function.  The focus of his work was on cells important in cardiovascular disease, particularly blood platelets, vascular smooth muscle and related cultured cells. 

Over his years at McMaster, Dr. Richard Haslam has held many significant grants from MRC/CIHR, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  Dr. Haslam’s publication list is extensive, and he was a major contributor to the graduate programs in Health Sciences.  He served as Chair of the Health Sciences Graduate Programs from 1994 to 1998.  He retired in 2003.  Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
