Bio

Dr. Assad is an interventional cardiologist with deep interest in the incorporation of exponential technologies to improve healthcare. He has a special interest in information technology and computer sciences as well. Early in his career he was granted the young investigator award by The Mexican Society of Cardiology for his research on genetic markers in acute coronary syndromes. Shortly after graduating from medical school he initiated a year of heart failure research at The Methodist DeBakey heart center. Here he became the first to demonstrate the presence of anti-cardiac antibodies in the failing myocardium. His findings have been the foundation of several award winning projects and ongoing research in the heart failure and transplant laboratory. Recently was awarded the 1st place for best international research project awardt
