Dr. Hanjoong Jo is Wallace Coulter Distinguished Chair Professor and Associate Chair in Wallace Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Emory University and Georgia Tech and Professor of Medicine at Emory University. He directs the Cardiovascular Mechanobiology, Therapeutics, and Nanomedicine Lab. His lab studies the mechanisms by which the mechanical force of blood flow regulates vascular endothelial function, which leads to atherosclerosis and aortic valve disease. Based on the mechanobiological studies, his lab develops novel therapeutics by targeting flow-sensitive genes/proteins and nanotechnology for targeted therapeutics delivery to treat cardiovascular disease safely and effectively. He has published >200 peer-reviewed papers and written three books as an editor. He is an elected fellow of the American Association for Advancement of Science, the Biomedical Engineering Society, the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, the American Heart Association, and the American Physiological Society.
