- Senior Investigator, Laboratory of Cardiac Physiology
Elizabeth Murphy received her B.A. in 1974 and her Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1980 from the University of Pennsylvania. From 1980 to 1983, she was a postdoctoral fellow and then an assistant research professor at Duke University Medical Center (DUMC). Before joining the NHLBI in 2006 as the head of the Cardiac Physiology Section, she was the head of the Cell Biology Group at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. She was an adjunct professor in the Division of Physiology, Department of Cell Biology at DUMC between 1984 and 2009. She became a Fellow of the American Heart Association in 2001 and a Fellow of the International Society for Heart Research in 2007; she received the NHLBI Award for Outstanding Mentorship in 2011.
