Rohan Shad, MD
Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiothoracic Surgery
BioI completed my medical training from the University College of Medical Sciences (Univ. of Delhi), New Delhi. I worked with the departments of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai, NY and Stanford University for my advanced elective rotations. During my medical school years, I worked on designing and developing novel mechanical heart valves making use of computational fluid dynamics methods and additive manufacturing techniques. I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Cardiothoracic Surgery working in Hiesinger's Lab where we write code in an effort to understand cardiovascular disease. We build novel computer vision systems for cardiovascular imaging (echocardiography and cardiac MRI). We also study the underlying mechanisms of heart disease using transcriptomics and protein design, and design devices for patients with severe heart failure. My work is funded by the American Heart Association postdoctoral fellowship award. A list of my publications and patents are available on google scholar.
Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsIn clinical research, Dr. Shrager has been an innovator studying outcomes in a variety of areas within Thoracic Surgery including: parenchyma-sparing operations and minimally invasive resections for lung cancer, transcervical thymectomy for myasthenia gravis, and surgical treatment of emphysema.
In the lab, Dr. Shrager is focused on the impact of disease states upon the diaphragm. His group published the seminal paper (NEJM) describing diaphragm atrophy assoc'd with mechanical ventilation.
