About the speaker:

Dr. Ram Kumar Subramanyan, MD, PhD is a practicing surgeon and researcher in the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California (USC).  As a cardiac surgeon-scientist, Dr. Subramanyan's work spans heart biology and surgical management of heart repair.  His research focuses on biological mechanisms related to heart development and regeneration.  In particular, he found that the same protein which leads to heart growth during fetal development shuts off in the adult (except in cancer cells).  Dr. Subramanyan previously conducted experiments that confirm this important biological pathway and is currently looking into how we can regenerate the organ we love most.
