Dr. Zapol is noted for saving thousands of hypoxic infants with his innovative treatment using nitric oxide and has received 13 U.S. patents related to his research on nitric oxide. In 2008, he was appointed by President George W. Bush and reappointed in 2012 by President Barack Obama as an academic representative to the U.S. Arctic Research Commission.
Following several expeditions to Antarctica, MIT Technology Review dubbed Dr. Zapol “Dr. Adventure,” and the United States Board on Geographic Names officially named a glacier in Antarctica after him.
Dr. Zapol will take the stage on Saturday, August 19th to deliver the Fifth Annual Lindahl Lecture, followed by a Q&A.
