Keynote Speakers

Prof. Da-Zhi Wang

Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School

Department of Cardiology, Boston Children’s Hospital

Topic: Studying the heart with your heart


Prof. Wang received his undergraduate education from Sichuan University and his Master of Science (MS) from Peking University in China. He then received his Ph.D.  from the Department of Biological Sciences of the University of Iowa. After the postdoctoral research at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, he continued the research in cardiology. Prof. Wang was awarded the AHA Established Investigator award in 2008 and was elected Fellow of American Heart Association (FAHA) in 2013.  Prof. Wang is a recognized leader in the research of cardiac function and cardiovascular disease.
