Mario Deng Career

Deng completed post-doctoral training in advanced heart failure, transplantation cardiology, and molecular cardiology at Stanford University in 1992-1993. Deng built the University of Münster’s interdisciplinary heart failure and heart transplant program while working as a professor there from 1992 to 2000.

As the Director of Cardiac Transplantation Research, Deng joined Columbia University in 2000. Deng received the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation’s first-ever position as Medical Director for the Mechanical Circulatory Support Database in 2001. As Director of the Advanced Heart Failure, Mechanical Circulatory Support, and Heart Transplant Program, he was hired in 2011 by the University of California, Los Angeles to rebuild the heart transplant program.

The Comparative Outcomes and Clinical Profiles in Transplantation (COCPIT Study), which led to the discussion on reorganizing the heart allocation rules in Europe and the US, was conducted and published by Deng.

To rule out rejection without invasive biopsies, Deng co-developed the first diagnostic and prognostic peripheral blood mononuclear cell gene expression profiling biomarker test in the history of heart transplantation medicine, which received US-FDA regulatory clearance and international evidence-based medicine guideline acceptance.

The Deng lab began creating a genetic blood test in 2005 to improve prognosis in patients with diverse types of severe heart failure.

Deng’s research partnership with Professor Federica Raia (UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies and David Geffen School of Medical) in the “Relational Medicine” project reflects the development of a framework to personalize high-tech modern medicine encounters.
