He worked as a radiologist in the department of radiology at Peking Union Medical College Hospital for 9 years prior to taking up one-year medical fellowship during 1998-1999 in Japan. His research interests include diagnostic imaging/radiology, 3D medical image visualization and processing, and hemodynamic analysis of cardiovascular diseases. He has demonstrated a particular interest in the coronary artery disease by using CT modality with aid of 3D visualization tools to assist early diagnosis and detection of coronary plaques, and prediction of disease outcomes. In addition, he has been studying the application of using computational fluid dynamics technique to improve understanding of the development of atherosclerosis, formation of plaques and effect of plaques on the hemodynamic changes to the coronary arteries. He has published over 150 refereed journal papers in medical/medical imaging journals. He is serving as an associate editor-in-chief for Journal of Geriatric Cardiology, associate editor for Journal of Mechanics in Medicine and Biology, Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics, and Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences, and an editorial board member in more than 20 medical and medical imaging journals.

  Biography :

Dr. Morteza Seifi studied the MSc Clinical Biochemistry at Tehran University of Medical Science (TUMS) from 2007-2009. During the time, he worked at Cellular and Molecular Research Center (CMRC) of TUMS and learned and mastered several molecular genetics and bioinformatics techniques. In 2010, he joined the Medical Genetics division of Legal Medicine Organization of Tabriz and continued his working there till 2013. Currently, he is a third year PhD student in Medical Genetics at the University of Alberta. He has received several academic awards, authored or co-authored numerous publications and was selected as member of Golden Key International Honour Society (being among the top 15% of students) in 2014. He is as reviewer and editorial board member for several internationally recognized journals. His PhD program focuses on association of Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome (ARS) with FOXC1 and PITX2 mutations. ARS is primarily an eye disorder, although it can also affect other parts of the body. About 50% of ARS patients develop glaucoma, a progressive blindness. A wide variety of computer-based bioinformatics studies, state-of-the-art techniques and experimental lab research, are being used by him to discover new mutations in the FOXC1 and PITX2 genes (and the genes that are regulated by either PITX2 or FOXC1) and then to characterize how the disease causing mutations interrupt FOXC1 and PITX2 function. It is his hope that better understanding of the function of PITX2 and FOXC1 together with knowledge of the genes regulated by these two transcription factors will lead to improved glaucoma detection and treatments.
