    October 26, 2021: Dr. MD. Tran Vu Hoang (Univ. Massachusetts Medical School, US), Inflammation and cardiac arrhythmias in ischemic heart disease

    Heart disease contributed to 23 percent of deaths in the United States in 2017. Cardiac arrhythmias (i.e., abnormal heart rhythm) are the major causes of death in heart disease. Cardiac arrhythmias can occur in the general population, but they tend to occur more commonly in patients who suffer from a heart attack. Some arrhythmias, such as ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, can be lethal and are the most common causes of sudden cardiac deaths, while other arrhythmias, e.g., atrial fibrillation, can lead to heart failure, stroke, or organ ischemia. Knowledge of the epidemiology of cardiac arrhythmias in terms of incidence, prevalence, associated outcomes, changes over time, and their mechanism is crucial to public health. This knowledge is frequently used to identify patients at risk of adverse outcomes and candidates for medical interventions. This talk links several traditional biomarkers of inflammation, namely leukocytosis and hyperglycemia, as risk factors for cardiac arrhythmias

    Speaker: Dr. MD. Tran Vu Hoang, Univ. Massachusetts Medical School

    Time: 15:30, Tuesday, October 26, 2021

    Venue: E3-710,144 Xuan Thuy,Cau Giay, Hanoi


    Dr. Tran attained his medical education at Hanoi Medical University. Subsequently, he finished a residency in Cardiology at Vietnam National Heart Institute – Bach Mai Hospital and Hanoi Medical University. He worked briefly as a cardiologist at the Department of Cardiology, Hanoi Medical University Hospital, before moving to the United States for more training in research. Dr. Tran obtained a Master of Public Health degree in Epidemiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a graduation thesis focusing on chronic rejection and vasculopathy in patients with heart transplantation. He subsequently obtained his Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical and Population Health Research at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. His research interests are healthcare disparity and cardiac arrhythmias, specifically their epidemiology, association with inflammation, and psychogenic effects. Dr. Tran has published scientific articles and book chapters in top-tier journals in medicine and cardiovascular disease. His research has been widely cited and featured in scientific editorials and media.


    December 07, 2021: Dr. Vu Thi Thom (UMP-VNU), Endothelium and Microcirculation in Noncommunicable Diseases

    The endothelium is a mono-layer of cells lining the interior surface of entire vascular system. In physiological condition, the endothelium kept the intact of vessel by stabilizing the vessel permeability as a bed for multiple signaling cascades. When the endothelium injured call endothelial dysfunction, it turned to pathological condition like thrombosis, inflammation that could lead […]

    November 30, 2021: Dr. Nguyen Tien Hoa (Hanoi Univ. Sci. Tech.), 5G – opportunities for industrial cooperationand aspects for research

    My motivation for this speech comes from a single wish that is to support a few hundred students of the electronics and telecommunications school each year to be able to work in the right major after their graduation. Although many good students often choose to go abroad for further research and higher education, there are […]

    November 16, 2021: Dr. Khuat Van Thanh (Le Quy Don Tech. Univ. ), Laser Fault Injection in a 32-bit Microcontroller: From the Flash Interface to the Execution Pipeline

    Fault Injection (FI) is an active side-channel attack in which an attacker induces faults to the target and further exploits them to extract secret information by differential analysis (fault vs no-fault). Many FI techniques have been developed, such as clock or voltage tampering, Electromagnetic fault injection, Laser fault injection (LFI). The attacks can be classified […]
