The Grover Conference

John (Jack) T. Reeves

John Reeves

Jack Reeves had made major scientific contributions in the area of hypoxia, the lung circulation, and the oxygen transport system. Specific areas of investigation include control of the fetal, neonatal and adult pulmonary circulations and the effect of high altitude. Dr Reeves was a research fellow along with Dr. Robert Grover, the two of them, with veterinary scientists of Colorado State University, conducted the first prospective studies to induce chronic pulmonary hypertension. Over nearly a half a century, Dr. Reeves has had a full career in respiratory research, with important contributions in basic physiology and clinical medicine. The result has been a well –deserved national and international reputation. He co-founded the Grover Conference along with Kenneth Weir and Wiltz Wagner. He served on the Program Committee of the Conference and served as the President of the Pulmonary Circulation Foundation, which is involved with raising money to support the Grover Conference.
