Yiannis S. Chatzizisis, received his MD, MSc and PhD degree from the Aristotle University Medical School, Thessaloniki, Greece and he did a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School investigating the role of local hemodynamics in the vascular biology of atherosclerosis. He was trained in cardiology at the First Department of Cardiology, AHEPA University Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece and specialized in advanced non-invasive Cardiovascular Imaging (cardiac MRI, cardiac CT, nuclear cardiology and echocardiography) at the Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. He is the recipient of 40 international and national awards, including the Young Investigators Award by the European Society of Cardiology, the Young Investigators Award by the European Atherosclerosis Society, the Merit Award for Young Investigators by the American Heart Association and the Academy of Athens Award. He is lead author in a number of papers published in Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Research, Atherosclerosis and American Journal of Cardiology among others. His research has been supported by grants from American, European and Greek funding bodies including the Behrakis Foundation, European Commission, Hellenic Heart Foundation, Hellenic Cardiological Society, Hellenic Atherosclerosis Society, Hellenic Harvard Foundation and Onassis Foundation. He serves as Associate Editor for Atherosclerosis and Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and as manuscript reviewer for Circulation, Circulation Research, Circulation Cardiovascular Imaging, Atherosclerosis, Heart, International Journal of Cardiology and American Journal of Cardiology among others. At the present, Dr Chatzizisis is with the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at the Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. His research is focused on the molecular biology of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular mechanics, non-invasive cardiovascular imaging and interventional cardiology.
