We are pleased to announce that Ching-Pin Chang, MD, PhD has been selected by the School of Medicine to serve as the second Charles Fisch Scholar at the KIC. The previous Charles Fisch Chair, Larry Jones, MD, PhD, has retired from the faculty after many years of outstanding contribution and service to the institution and the field of cardiovascular science.

Dr Chang graduated from National Taiwan University, received his PhD training at Stanford, general medicine training at MGH and cardiology fellowship training at Stanford. He is a board certified cardiologist. He has two active NIH R01s and several other awards. His 2014 publication (Han et al: A long noncoding RNA protects the heart from pathological hypertrophy. Nature. 2014;514:102-106) was selected by Circulation Cardiovascular Genetics as one of the Top Advances in Functional Genomics and Translational Biology in 2014.

In addition, Dr Chang was awarded tenure by the School of Medicine. He will become a tenured associate professor of medicine and the Charles Fisch Scholar effective July 1, 2015. When he is eventually promoted to full professor, the title of Charles Fisch Scholar will be changed to Charles Fisch Chair.
