Dr. Paul Iaizzo has been at the University of Minnesota since 1990, performing research and teaching graduate and undergraduate courses. In 1997, Dr. Iaizzo and his coworkers began working on large mammalian isolated heart models, and thus the Visible Heart® laboratory was created in collaboration with Medtronic, Inc. Today, this lab is a premiere place to perform translational systems physiology research which ranges from cellular and tissue studies to organ and whole body investigations. The Visible Heart® lab embodies a creative atmosphere which is energized by some of the best and brightest students at the University.
Professor of Surgery; Integrative Biology and Physiology; and the Carlson School of Management, Associate Director, Institute for Engineering in Medicine, Distinguished University Teaching Professor, Medtronic Professor of Visible Heart® Research, Director for Education of the Lillehei Heart Institute, Director of the Malignant Hyperthermia Muscle Biopsy Center
