Dr. Nandan Kumar Mondal, M.Sc., M.Phil., Ph.D. is currently an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Dr. Mondal is also a part of the Advanced Heart Failure Research program in the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute, University of Louisville. Dr. Mondal has approximately a decade’s worth of experience in the field of human as well as animal biology related to Public Health research and education. In India, he had a broad background in hematology since 2007, with specific training and expertise in wide range of hematological abnormalities research areas like health effects of ‘Indoor Air Pollution’, ‘Drug Abuse’, ‘Occupational exposure’, ‘thermal power pollution’ etc. Dr. Mondal came to University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA in 2012 in order to expand upon his knowledge of hematology, platelet activity and flow cytometry upon developing a strong interest in blood contacting biomedical devices, specifically continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVADs). As CF-LVAD increase in popularity as an effective treatment option for heart failure patients, understanding the risks and complications associated with implantation of those devices is crucial. In 2014, he moved to University of Louisville as a faculty. Dr. Mondal has quickly proved himself to be one of the most elite cardiothoracic researchers in the field. He took his background in public health and hematology and has expanded that knowledge into the world of CF-LVAD and advancing the understanding of complications associated with heart failure and mechanical circulatory support devices.
