About Me

Thanasekaran Jayakumar is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Pharmacology, Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Taipei Medical University, Taiwan. Dr. Jayakumar gained his Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences in 2008 from the Bharadhidasan University, India. He has been conducting an independent honor’s research work at Taipei Medical University for the past 11 years in the field of cardiovascular diseases. Without a doubt, he is one of those rare individuals; he is highly intelligent, inquisitive, motivated, and creative. His contribution is being important to science and technology, as he is an expert in molecular biology with special reference to the therapeutic value of natural products and metal compounds for human diseases. However, what is noteworthy is that he counts 85 research papers and 9 review papers in peer-reviewed journals, with few more in the pipeline, and he acts as referee for several specialty journals. During his masters and Ph.D.’s, he has received few special awards for his outstanding contribution to life sciences and environmental sciences. Dr. Thanasekaran Jayakumar won the ‘Outstanding Researcher Award’ from Taipei Medical University for the years 2013- 2018. His total citation is 1600.

Massimo Antonio Padalino


Department of Cardiothoracic, Vascular disease and Publich Health

university of Padova, Italy


About Me

I am currently an Associate Professor of Cardiac Surgery at the University of Padova, medical School, founded in 1222 AD. I am a Ph.D. in cardiac Sciences and I have 2 masters in Cardiac Pathology and Pediatrics. My current clinical duties include: - surgical operation of all kinds of congenital heart disease (neonates to adults) - septal defects in the minimally invasive approach - Transatrial repair of tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary valve preservation - Arterial switch for transposition of the great arteries - Neonatal repair of coarctation interrupted aortic arch, - Hybrid/staged repair for hypoplastic left heart syndrome - clinical consults in the outpatient clinic, and in other peripheral (SPOKE) hospitals which have my institution as HUB center for congenital heart disease - clinical and pharmacological management of the postoperative course of patients in Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and in the wards - sharing monthly outcalls, for a total of 15 days/months of calls coverage During my training, I was a clinical fellow at Mayo Clinic, where I gained valuable experience working alongside Dr. Gordon Danielson who taught me surgical management of complex congenital heart disease in adults. During my stay in Boston Children’s Hospital and Mott Children’s Hospital at University of Michigan, I was lucky enough to work with Dr. Pedro del Nido,  Dr. Richard Jonas, and Dr. Edward Bove, who trained me in early repair of most congenital heart diseases such as AV septal defects, tetralogy of Fallot, TGA, and the management of  HLHS. Since returning to the University of Padua, I have continued to explore new techniques, such as a minimally invasive approach and hybrid procedure for the repair of simple congenital heart diseases (ASD, VSD, PAPVD), and reconstruction of the pulmonary valve in tetralogy of Fallot during transatrial repair. I am proud to have developed a Pediatric VAD program and a cutting-edge  HUB&SPOKE ECMO program. My most recent training experience in the USA was with Johns Hopkins University Hospital in 2015, where I worked with a multidisciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, and scientists (including Dr. Duke Cameron, Dr. Luca Vricella, and Dr. Hal Dietz), to learn the Aortic valve-sparing technique - one of my academic interests.  As an academic, I enjoy researching the latest breakthrough and learning about best practices in the field of Congenital heart disease. I am actively investigating topics such as evaluation of neurological and pulmonary outcomes after cardiopulmonary bypass in children undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease, results of pulmonary valve repair, in tetralogy of Fallot, neonatal coarctation repair, surgery for the anomalous aortic origin of coronary arteries (as coordinator of a prospective European registry). I also like sharing my findings with students and trainees whom I usually involved in my projects. I attend international meetings as both a presenter and a participant to update my knowledge in the management of CHD. For example, I have been presenting my research at the annual EACTS meeting in Europe in the last three years. I have led several multicenter clinical studies that have allowed me to gain experience and knowledge in several topics, and also foster professional friendships all over the world.  I took an active part in some prestigious EU-funded clinical research projects as a partner. I am part of the scientific committee of the Italian Society of cardiac surgery and the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association (ECHSA).
