    Morteza Naghavi, M.D.
Dr. Naghavi is the founder and president of MEDITEX, a medical technology innovation and investment company dedicated to translating innovative ideas to healthcare solutions. He is also the Founder and Executive Chairman of the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) based in Houston, Texas. Dr. Naghavi received his MD from Tehran University of Medical Sciences and was trained at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston and Texas Heart Institute where he served as a cardiology faculty member and Co-Director of the Vulnerable Plaque Research Department. Dr. Naghavi led advancing the field of “Vulnerable Plaque” to “Vulnerable Patient” and organized the SHAPE Task Force to focus on early detection and treatment of asymptomatic patients with subclinical atherosclerosis through the SHAPE Guidelines. He has over 30 inventions in the fields of interventional cardiology, noninvasive imaging, ambulatory diagnostics, wearable sensors, and personalized preventive healthcare. Among his inventions are digital thermal monitoring of vascular function and personalized ischemic conditioning device. Dr. Naghavi has numerous publications and is the editor of Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis; Pathophysiology,Detection and Treatment.

Karen Przyklenk Ph.D.
Professor and Director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI. is Director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute and Professor of Physiology and Emergency Medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine. Dr. Przyklenk has more than 20 years of experience in conducting translational, bench-to-bedside research focusing on the pathophysiology of acute coronary ischemic syndromes, the identification of cellular mechanisms and signaling pathways that increase the tolerance of the myocardium to ischemia, and the development of novel strategies to limit damage caused to the heart by ischemiareperfusion. Dr. Przyklenk' has authored more than 170 peer-reviewed papers, invited reviews, editorials and book chapters in the field of myocardial ischemia and infarction, is on the editorial board of multiple journals, and been a grant reviewer for the NIH, the American Heart Association, as well as the Biomedical Research Council of Singapore and the Wellcome Trust (UK). In addition to her research interests, one of Dr. Przyklenk's long-standing priorities has been the mentoring of post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty; indeed, several of her previous mentees have become established, independent scientists and leaders in cardiovascular research.
