Ibrahim Domian, MD, PhD
The Domian Laboratory is focused on adapting findings of basic developmental and stem cell biology to translational cardiovascular medicine. Ibrahim Domian obtained his MD/PhD training at Stanford University School of Medicine as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Developmental Biology working with Dr. Lucy Shapiro on cell cycle control of bacteria. Upon completion of his M.D. training, he served as a medical intern, resident, and cardiology fellow at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). For his postdoctoral research training, Dr. Domian worked with Dr. Kenneth Chien and developed a transgenic murine system to isolate distinct populations of cardiac progenitor cells from embryonic stem cells and the developing embryos. In July of 2008, Dr. Domian became a staff cardiologist and principal investigator at the Cardiovascular Research Center at the MGH.
