Phillip C. Yang
Phillip C. Yang obtained his M.D. degree and is an Assistant Professor of cardiovascular medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He codirects the Cardiovascular Diagnostic and Therapeutic MRI Laboratory, the Laboratory for Cellular and Molecular MRI for Cardiovascular Stem Cell (Yang Lab), and Stanford Cardiovascular MRI Service. Yang holds appointments at the Stanford Institute of Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine and Cardiovascular Institute. Dr. Yang is a Physician-Scientist, whose research interest focuses on molecular, cellular, and tissue imaging of the myocardium. Specifically, he combines the chemical sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance with high spatial and temporal resolution to characterize a wide range of biological events spanning from molecular to physiologic processes. His innovative approach to in vivo imaging of stem cell biology has enabled dual imaging of stem cell survival and the effect of cell therapy on the injured myocardium. Yang has received numerous awards and recognition including the NIH Career Development Award, NIH Stem Cell Career Enhancement Award, American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Award, and Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award from the American Heart Association. He is frequently invited as a guest speaker and session chair at national and international meetings.
