Research & Publications
Mehran M. Sadeghi, MD, studied medicine at Necker Enfants Malades School of Medicine and earned his medical degree from the University of Paris in 1991. Prior to establishing the Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory, Dr. Sadeghi completed his residency and fellowship training at Yale New Haven Hospital followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine.
The goal of the Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory is to develop novel in vivo imaging approaches to visualize, characterize and quantify molecular and cellular processes involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases, and to address novel aspects of vascular and valvular biology. This is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary effort, involving the researchers with expertise in vascular and molecular biology, molecular imaging, medical physics and chemistry. The research focus is on vascular remodeling, fibrosis and inflammation, key features of atherosclerosis, aneurysm, cardiomyopathy, and calcific aortic valve disease.
Dr. Sadeghi is a recipient of the Hermann Blumgart Award from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and a past president of the Cardiovascular Council of the Society of Nuclear medicine and Molecular Imaging. He is a member of American College of Cardiology, Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, and the North American Vascular Biology Organization.
