Faculty Candidate Seminar
January 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presenter: Haibo Ni, PhD
Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine
University of California, Davis
Talk Title: Quantitative systems physiology and pharmacology for cardiac arrhythmias
Dr. Haibo Ni is an Assistant Project Scientist at the Department of Pharmacology, University of California Davis. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biological Physics from the University of Manchester, U.K., in 2017, and completed postdoctoral training with Prof. Eleonora Grandi’s lab at Davis. Dr. Ni received a prestigious American Heart Association (AHA) Postdoctoral Fellowship and is a grant reviewer for AHA Fellowship programs. He has 28 peer-reviewed journal publications and one book chapter in press.
Dr. Ni’s research advances quantitative systems investigation of cardiac physiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology by developing multiscale and multiphysics computational frameworks of the heart. Dr. Ni’s work focuses on applying these frameworks to dissect complex mechanisms of heart diseases and define and optimize new therapeutic strategies through in-silico drug screening and virtual clinical trials using personalized simulations, with an emphasis on heart rhythm disorders.
