Watson Lecture: Mory Gharib (PhD '83) on the "Engima of the Heart"
Our circulatory system's 500 million years of evolution is on full display during the nine months of human embryonic heart development. The hallmark of this evolution is a beating, complex, autonomous muscular pump that sustains life. In this lecture, Mory Gharib (PhD '83), the Hans W. Liepmann Professor of Aeronautics and Medical Engineering, explains the wave system established by the beating heart that moves through the human body, which can provide a window to the health of the cardiovascular system and early diagnoses of its devastating diseases by utilizing modern data science.
