Professor Boheler, Kenneth Richard
Kenneth R. Boheler received his B.Sc. in Zoology from Duke University and his Ph.D. in Physiology and Pharmacology at the University of California San Diego. After completing a post-doctoral fellowship at INSERM U127 in Paris in cardiac molecular biology, he moved to Imperial College in London as a Lecturer in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, where he studied calcium-handling proteins in heart development and disease. In 1996, he moved to the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health (NIH) where he directed the Molecular Cardiology and Stem Cell Group. His research interests focused on stem cell biology, differentiation to cardiomyocytes, the study of aging, and applications involving Omic and bioinformatics tools. In 2013, he relocated to Hong Kong as Deputy Director of the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Consortium, and is now full-time Professor in the LKS Faculty of Medicine and Department of Physiology. His research encompasses cardiovascular molecular and cellular biology, and he has active programs designed to evaluate the suitability of human derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) generated from patients with cardiovascular diseases for basic research, disease modeling and potential therapeutic applications. He remains active on numerous stem cell-, cardiovascular- and aging-related journal Editorial Boards, is a member of multiple cardiac and stem cell Research Societies, serves as a member of an International Peer Review College of Experts and as a Senior Advisor to the MRC (United Kingdom). He also retains a “Special Volunteer” status at the NIH, National Eye Institute, and a Visiting Professorship in Cardiology at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute.
