"Genomics and Stem Cells for Precision Cardiovascular Medicine"
Joseph C. Wu, M.D., Ph.D.
Director, Stanford Cardiovascular Institute
Simon H. Stertzer, M.D., Professor of Medicine & Radiology
Stanford University School of Medicine
Joseph C. Wu, MD, PhD is Director of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (http://cvi.stanford.edu/) and the Simon H. Stertzer, MD, Professor of Medicine and Radiology. Dr. Wu received his medical degree from Yale. He completed his medicine internship, residency and cardiology fellowship training at UCLA followed by a PhD (Molecular & Medical Pharmacology) in the UCLA STAR program. His clinical interests involve adult congenital heart disease and cardiovascular imaging.
His lab works on biological mechanisms of patient-specific and disease-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The main goals are to (i) understand mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases, (ii) accelerate drug discovery, (iii) develop “clinical trial in a dish” concept, and (iv) implement precision medicine for cardiovascular patients. His lab uses a combination of stem cells, genomics, epigenetics, cellular & molecular biology, physiological testing, and molecular imaging technologies. Dr. Wu has published >450 manuscripts with H-index of 108 on Google scholar. He is listed as top 1% highly cited researchers in Web of Science (2018, 2019 & 2020). Among his trainees, >35 of them are principal investigators in the US or abroad (http://med.stanford.edu/wulab.html).
