    Collapse Overview
    Albert Hsiao is a San Diego native, raised in Poway. He completed a dual-major at Caltech in Biology and Engineering/Computer Science before returning to San Diego for medical school, as part of the dual-degree MD-PhD Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). He is a graduate of the UCSD Bioengineering and Bioinformatics PhD programs, completing his thesis work with Shankar Subramaniam and Jerry Olefsky on the functional genomics of insulin resistance. He continued his clinical training at Stanford in general surgery, diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology and cardiovascular imaging. While a clinical diagnostic radiology resident, he co-founded Arterys, Inc, a start-up company that developed a cloud-based medical imaging artificial intelligence platform and partnered with GE Healthcare to bring the 4D Flow MRI technology to market. He returned to UCSD as faculty in the Department of Radiology, where he continues to practice clinically and founded the Augmented imaging/Artificial intelligence Data Analytics (AiDA) laboratory to further build advanced imaging techniques for earlier, more precise diagnosis and treatment in cardiovascular disease and oncology.
