Hossein Baharvand

Hossein Baharvand is a distinguished Professor at Royan Institute. He received his B.Sc. in Biology, his M.Sc. in Developmental Biology and his Ph.D. in Cell and Developmental Biology. He generated the first lines of mouse and human embryonic stem cells (2003) and induced pluripotent stem cells (2008) in Iran which enabled his team to pursue many avenues of research specially translational approaches and regenerative medicine. He is the founder and director of Royan Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Technology, where they are committed to cross-disciplinary partnerships and collaborations by biology, engineering, and medical academics to improve human health and quality of life.

Deep Learning Based Proarrhythmia Analysis Using Field Potentials Recorded from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells Derived Cardiomyocytes
       Abstract: An early characterization of drug-induced cardiotoxicity may be possible by combining comprehensive in vitro proarrhythmia assay and deep learning techniques. We aimed to develop a method to automatically detect irregular beating rhythm of field potentials recorded from human pluripotent stem... Read more
