Dr. Hsiai is the Maud Cady Guthman Endowed Term Chair in Cardiology and Professor of Medicine and Bioengineering. His research team focuses on advanced sensors and laser light-sheet to study cardiovascular development, injury and repair. Following his STAR Fellowship (BioMEMS in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering), he was recruited to the University of Southern California Schools of Engineering and Medicine with an Early Career Endowed Chair. In 2014, he was recruited back to UCLA to promote team science, which led to the LA PRISMS Center connecting UCLA Bioinformatics with USC’s Environmental Engineering. Dr. Hsiai directs the NIH T32 UCLA/Caltech training program, which has established a track record of converging engineering with medicine through the NIH-funded team science projects with Caltech, Cornell, Stanford, and USC.
