New Faculty Welcome - Vahid Serpooshan, PhD

Vahid Serpooshan received his undergraduate degrees (BSc and MSc) in Materials Science and Engineering at Sharif University in Iran. He then received his PhD in biomaterials for tissue engineering from McGill University. His PhD thesis focused on design and optimization of scaffolding biomaterials for tissue engineering applications. In 2011, Vahid joined Stanford University School of Medicine as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr. Ruiz-Lozano lab in Pediatrics-Cardiology.  There his research mainly focused on developing a new generation of engineered cardiac patch device to repair damaged cardiac tissue following myocardial infarction (heart attack). Dr. Serpooshanalso worked on enabling technologies for human-machine hybrid cardiac tissue, using 3D printing to assemble complex arrays of interfaces between synthetic and biological materials.

Dr.  Serpooshan joined the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, as well as the Department of Pediatrics, in early 2018.
