Dr. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie has been appointed full affiliate member of the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI). Recommended by the board of directors of the institute and appointed to the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, Guiseppi-Elie assumed his appointment March 1. He was also appointed adjunct professor of biomedical engineering in the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences within the Houston Methodist Institute for Academic Medicine (IAM), effective April 1.

“Tony is a highly collaborative scientist/engineer who brings a wealth of experience in the design, development and application of chemical and biological sensors to challenges in human health. We welcome Tony’s participation with our department and within the HMRI broadly,” said Dr. John P. Cooke, chairman of cardiovascular science at HMRI and the IAM.

Guiseppi-Elie is associate dean of engineering medicine (EnMed) at Texas A&M University. He is currently a TEES Research Professor and professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering with a courtesy appointment in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. EnMed is Texas A&M’s innovative engineering medicine school option at Houston Methodist Hospital, developed to educate a new kind of physician to create transformational technology for health care.

“I am delighted to join my colleagues at HMRI, several with whom I have active collaborations,” said Guiseppi-Elie.

Guiseppi-Elie is world-renowned researcher whose interests are in engineered bioanalytical microsystems in the service of human health and medicine. Collaborations with Houston Methodist researchers include one with Dr. Ennio Tasciotti on the application of a dual-function, 24-well Electrical Cell Stimulation and Recording System for the concomitant electrification of human inducible pluripotent stem cells to guide differentiation while monitoring and modeling cellular trans-membrane electrical impedance.

Another is with Dr. Philip Horner on the development and application of electroconductive polymer interfaces for next-generation neurostimulation electrodes. He also is working with Cooke on the development and application of a biosensor-enabled, dual-sensing, microfluidic vasculature-on-a-chip system that measures nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species for studying the role of therapeutic agents on human inducible pluripotent stem cells derived endothelial cells from patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome.

Guiseppi-Elie has published more than 150 archival scientific papers, 31 books or proceedings chapters, holds eight U.S. and foreign patents and has given over 200 invited lectures. He is editor-in-chief of Bioengineering, associate editor of Biomedical Microdevices and a member of the editorial boards of The Journal of Bioactive and Compatible Polymers, NanoBiotechnology and Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology.

He has been a guest editor for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics. Guiseppi-Elie is a Fulbright Specialist Award recipient in bioengineering at the University of Tucumán in Tucumán, Argentina, and Wrocław University of Science and Technology in Poland, and has been an IEEE-Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Distinguished Lecturer.

He is a fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry and IEEE, a lifetime member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and holds memberships in many other prominent organizations.
