Hanjoong Jo, professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory, and a professor of medicine at Emory, has just added a new title with his appointment as the Wallace H. Coulter Distinguished Faculty Chair.

“It’s well-deserved recognition for Dr. Jo’s scholarly impact on and off campus,” noted Susan Magulies, who chairs the Coulter Department.

Jo’s lab studies how blood flow regulates endothelial biology and dysfunction, which leads to atherosclerosis and aortic valve calcification (his game-changing research demonstrated, for the first time, that disturbed blood flow can actually induce atherosclerosis). 

He is a researcher in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and an elected fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering Society, American Heart Association, and American Physiological Society.
