Martin Morad, PhD. is Professor of Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the University of South Carolina (USC) and Professor of Bioengineering at Clemson University. He is the Director of the Cardiac Signaling Center and holds the BlueCross Blue Shield of South Carolina Endowed Chair in Cardiovascular Health, which includes a unique three-way faculty appointment at the USC, MUSC and Clemson University.

Dr. Morad is an internationally recognized scientist in the field of cardiac electrophysiology and calcium signaling. He has pioneered many of the seminal findings and technology in the field of Cardiac calcium signaling. He has had over 300 original publications, 20 of which have appeared in Science and Nature. Dr. Morad’s career is marked by an incessant drive to formulate new physiological and molecular concepts based on innovative technology. He was first to Voltage-clamp cardiac tissue, use laser scanning of optical dyes to measure action potential propagation in the heart, Photo-release of caged compounds in cardiomyocytes and neurons, and apply TIRF imaging to resolve calcium signaling dynamics. His work has generated critical data on a wide variety of biological processes, ranging from EC-coupling, SA-nodal pacemaking mechanism, Regulation of ion channel proteins and Calcium signaling alternations in development and comparative biology. He has had a distinguished scientific career as a Professor of Physiology and Medicine at University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, and now as an Endowed professor at the three leading universities of SC. He has trained over 100 Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, most of whom have leading academic positions in American, European, and Asian Universities. Among his many honors and services to the scientific community, in an advisory or editorial capacity, are also his services as the organizer of international high profile scientific conferences. He was awarded the German Government senior Scientist Alexander von Humboldt prize for his seminal work in cardiac electrophysiology.
Dr. Morad's current research is focused primarily on the complex protein interactions that regulate heart function that requires creation of transgenic animals that over-express or are deleted of proteins that are thought to be critical in pathophysiology of heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. His Lab has pioneered the use of stem cell derived cardiomyocytes in probing the mechanisms underlying the CPVT1 arrhythmia using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technique. His gene editing approach may lead to new therapeutic approaches to treating life-threatening arrhythmias and to creation of tissue-based pacemaker using genetically engineered cells from patient dermal fibroblasts. His research for the past 50 years has been continuously funded by NIH.

He has maintained a lab at Mount Desert Biological Labs in Maine for 40 years, where he has cloned genes from marine species and has introduced them in mammalian hearts to prevent arrhythmias associated with cardiac failure.

Shin was the founding Director of Brain Science Institute, KIST, and then Director of Center for Cognition and Sociality, IBS. He continues his research as an Honorary Fellow of IBS. He serves a CSO at SL Bigen Co. (Ltd.).
He studied neural mechanisms for animal behaviors, primarily focusing on the role of the thalamus in normal and diseased brains. His interest was on the regulation of intracellular Ca 2+ levels in brain cells. He utilized gene knock-out tools on genes such as voltage-gated Ca 2+ channels and PLC enzymes. Beginning in 2010 his research interest has evolved to neurobiology of social behaviors. He has pioneered to establish a behavioral paradigm, observational fear learning in mice, a rodent model for emotional contagion, basic form of affective empathy. This paradigm allowed, for the first time, to study affective empathy at the molecular and cellular levels.
He has been elected to be a member of the National Academy of Science, Republic of Korea, a foreign member at the National Academy of Science, USA, and an AAAS Fellow.

Special Lectures

  • Walter Boron
    Walter Boron biography
    Case Western Reserve University, USA
    The role of membrane proteins as channels for dissolved gases

    Dr. Boron is Distinguished University Professor and Myers/Scarpa Professor and Chair of the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University. He earned his AB summa cum laude in chemistry at Saint Louis University, and his MD and PhD (Physiology & Biophysics) at Washington University in St. Louis. Boron joined Yale University as a postdoctoral fellow with Emile Boulpaep in 1978, and remained there for the next 29 years, serving three terms as Chairman of the Department of Cellular & Molecular Physiology. In 2007, he returned to his hometown of Cleveland to assume his present position.
    Boron developed his life-long interest in acid-base transport and intracellular-pH (pHi) regulation during his PhD studies with Albert Roos (his official mentor), Paul De Weer, and John Russell; and his interest in renal HCO3−transport with postdoctoral mentor Boulpaep. Boron and collaborators described the first example of dynamic pHi regulation, discovered the electrogenic Na/HCO3 cotransporter (NBCe1), and introduced many of the paradigms used to study pHi regulation. The cloning, by the Boron Lab, of the cDNA encoding NBCe1 led to the identification of numerous, related HCO3−transporters. Their invention of out-of-equilibrium CO2/HCO3− solutions led to the discovery of receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase γ (RPTPγ) as a molecular sensor of extracellular CO2 and HCO3−, and modulator of acid-base transport. Their encounter with the first CO2-impermeable membrane led to the discovery of the first example of a membrane protein with permeability to a dissolved gas, aquaporin-1. Boron’s group currently focuses on three related areas: the molecular physiology of the Na+-coupled HCO3−transporters, RPTPγ and RPTPζ, as well as CO2 and O2 channels.
    Boron is former President of the American Physiological Society (APS) and former Secretary General of the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS), as well as former editor in-chief of two journals, Physiological Reviews and Physiology. He is currently chair of the IUPS Publications Committee. Boron and Emile Boulpaep co-edit the textbooks Medical Physiology and Concise Medical Physiology.
    Among Boron’s accolades are the Pitts Lecture/Award (IUPS, 1993), Gottschalk Lecture/Award (APS, 1998), NIH MERIT Award (2002), an honorary doctorate (Aarhus University, 2014), National Academy of Medicine (USA, 2014), Fellow of the APS (2015), and Fenn Lecture (IUPS, 2022).

    Gou Young Koh is a distinguished professor at KAIST Graduate School of Medical Science and Engineering, and the director of the Center for Vascular Research, Institute for Basic Science. He is also an external member of Max-Plank Institute. For the last 25 years, he has focused on the discovery and understanding of the growth factors regulating micro-vasculatures including tumor vasculature. During this time, his research team has made numerous major advances and breakthroughs in the field of angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. Notably, he and his research team discovered and generated several novel and potent modulators of angiogenesis – three angiopoietin-like proteins, COMP-Ang1, DAAP and ABTAA – based on their keen observations and creative ideas. Moreover, he and his team have made ground-breaking discoveries in the understanding of the unique features and regulations of tumor vessels as well as on the characterization of key factors involved in organotypic angiogenesis and vascular maintenance. Lately, they have performed landmark studies in uncovering critical regulators for maintaining the integrity of specialized lymphatic vessels such as meningeal lymphatic vessels. By recognition of his outstanding and excellent achievements and contributions to biomedical communities, he became laureates of the Kyung-Am Prize (2011), Asan Award in Medicine (2012), and Ho-Am Prize in Medicine (2018).
