Dr. Ganz is the Chief of Cardiology and the Director of the Center of Excellence in Vascular Research at the San Francisco General Hospital. He is the Maurice Eliaser Distinguished Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Ganz has been a pioneer and a leader in translational vascular research. He has focused on understanding key elements of human atherosclerosis including the pathobiology of the human endothelium, the biology of vascular nitric oxide, systemic and vascular inflammatory responses and atherosclerotic plaque instability. As a member of the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science, he is currently conducting studies that will inform the cardiovascular effects and potential harms of conventional, new or emerging tobacco products. Dr. Ganz has authored over 200 peer reviewed articles, many published in the most prestigious journals. He has served on steering committees of numerous clinical trials. Many fellows who worked in Dr. Ganz’s laboratory have gone onto key leadership positions in academic medicine nationally and internationally. Dr. Ganz received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, completed his residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital and cardiovascular fellowship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He spent 25 years directing research in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, prior to arriving to the University of California, San Francisco in 2008.
