Dayue Darrel Duan, MD (Hunan Medical University, 1982), MSc (Sun Yat- Sen University of Medical Sciences, 1987), PhD (McGill University, 1996), is a Professor of Pharmacology and Director of Laboratory of Cardiovascular Phonomics in the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence and the Department of Pharmacology, University of Nevada, Reno, USA. He is also a Visiting Professor of several prestigious universities in China, including Central South University XiangYa Medical College, Sun Yat-sen University, the Second Military Medical University, the Forth Military Medical University, and Harbin Medical University. He has been studying cellular and molecular electrophysiology and cardiovascular pharmacology for 25 years. He discovered several anion channels in the heart and has made significant contributions to the study of biophysics, physiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology of ion channels in the cardiovascular system. His current research, supported by NIH, American Heart Association, and American Diabetes Association, is focusing on the functional genomics, proteomics, and phenomics of ion channels in the cardiovascular systems. He has published more than 50 papers and book chapters. His publications often appear in the most prestigious journals including Nature, Physiological Review, Circulation, Circulation Research, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Journal of General Physiology, Journal of Physiology etc. He served on the Research Committee of the Western States Affiliate of American Heart Association. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Acta Pharmacologica Sinica, Proceedings of Western Pharmacological Society, and World Journal of Cardiology, and a frequent referee for more than 40 professional journals.
