Paul A. Iaizzo, PhD FHRS is a Professor is the Departments of Surgery and the Carlson School of Management, and is on the graduate faculties in Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, Integrative Biology & Physiology, Biological Science, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Additionally, he serves as the Associate Director for the Institute for Engineering in Medicine, also at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Iaizzo earned his PhD degree (Focus: Physiology/Neurophysiology) from the University of Minnesota. His main research focus is translational systems physiology, and his research group has developed a unique isolated working large mammalian heart model. The Visible Heart Laboratory is well known for its novel imaging techniques of cardiac anatomy and physiology, and is a ideal place to perform translational systems physiology research. Other research interests include cardiac pacing, skeletal muscle pathophysiology, thermoregulation, black bear hibernation, wound healing, and spine biomechanics.
In 2002, Paul was awarded as a Distinguished University Teaching Professor. Since 1990, he has trained over 150 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical students in his laboratory. Dr. Iaizzo has authored more than 200 original articles, edited 4 books, and holds multiple patents (both US and European) related to cardiac anatomy, physiology, and devices. In 2012, he was named to College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) for "outstanding contributions to research and education in translational systems physiology and cardiovascular engineering".
