Dan Sorescu received his medical degree from Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest (Romania). He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Beth Israel Hospital (Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York) and his clinical cardiology fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine. While at Emory he trained for three years as research fellow in basic science with Dr. Kathy K. Griendling in her vascular biology laboratory studying the role of oxidative stress and NADPH oxidases in human coronary artery disease. In 2001, he became an Instructor in Medicine at Emory University and since July 2003 he is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology. Dr. Sorescu is currently studying the interaction of oxidative stress with the renin-angiotensin II-aldosterone system and transforming growth factor beta in the development and progression of cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis and heart failure. Dr Sorescu has received several grants from the American Heart Association. His clinical interest is in heart failure and tissue Doppler echocardiography as modality to assess severity of heart failure and mechanical cardiac dyssynchrony.
