Albert J. Sinusas, M.D., FACC, FAHA, FASNC is Professor of Medicine (Section of Cardiovascular Medicine) and Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Yale University School of Medicine, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Yale University, and Director of the Yale Translational Research Imaging Center (Y-TRIC), and Director of Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging at Yale New Haven Hospital. He received a BS degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, MD degree at University of Vermont, College of Medicine, and completed training in internal medicine at the University of Oklahoma, and training in cardiology and nuclear cardiology at the University of Virginia. He joined the faculty at Yale University School of Medicine in 1990 where he has remained.Dr. Sinusas has served as a standing member of the Clinical and Integrated Cardiovascular Sciences (CICS), and standing member and chair of Medical Imaging (MEDI), and Clinical Translational Imaging Sciences (CTIS) study sections of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Sinusas has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Cardiovascular Council (CVC), Molecular Imaging Center of Excellence (MICoE), and Center for Molecular Imaging Innovation and Translation (CMIIT) of the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM), and Board of Directors of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology. He was the 2008 recipient of the SNM Hermann Blumgart Award. His research is directed at development, validation and application of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging approaches for the assessment of cardiovascular pathophysiology, including the targeted molecular assessment of myocardial ischemic injury, angiogenesis, arteriogenesis, and post–infarction atrial and ventricular remodeling. The investigation of these biological processes involves, ex vivo and in vivo imaging in animal models of cardiovascular disease and humans. This translational research employs the 3–D modalities of X-ray computed tomography (CT) and fluoroscopy, SPECT/CT, PET/CT, echocardiography, and MR imaging in an animal physiology laboratory and clinical environment. Dr. Sinusas has been the principal investigator of several NIH grants involving multi-modality cardiovascular imaging, and directs a NIH funded T32 grant providing training in multi-modality molecular and translational cardiovascular imaging. He is the author of over 240 peer reviewed publications and invited reviews related to cardiovascular imaging, and co-edited a textbook entitled Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging published in 2007 and Hybrid Imaging in Cardiovascular Medicine in 2018.
