Hund, Thomas


Dr. Hund is a Professor in Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University.  He also holds a joint appointment in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine and serves as Associate Director for the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute.  The Hund lab employs a highly interdisciplinary approach combining state-of-the-art computational and experimental approaches to uncover novel pathways for regulation of cardiac cell excitability. This research effort has defined novel molecular pathways for local control of cardiac ion channel activity with important implications for human cardiac arrhythmia.  In addition to his research achievements, Dr. Hund has been recognized for his dedication to promoting undergraduate and graduate education in biomedical engineering through curriculum development, didactic teaching and mentoring. Before joining Ohio State in July 2011, Dr. Hund was an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Biomedical Engineering at University of Iowa.  He received his B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University.
