Hemal Patel, PhD
Professor & Vice-Chair for Research at UC San Diego
Department of Anesthesiology
Department of Anesthesiology
Hemal H. Patel, PhD, is a Professor and Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Patel’s career has focused on developing an integrated understanding of the organism by studying whole animal and cell physiology techniques with a particular focus on bio-membranes and cellular energetics. He has broad interests in cardiovascular disease, cancer biology, neurodegeneration, aging, and diabetes. He has published over 170 original manuscripts, reviews, and book chapters featured in prominent journals such as Science, Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature Communications, Journal of Biological Chemistry, FASEB Journal, and Circulation. He has given over 70 research seminars nationally and internationally. He serves as a senior editor and editorial board member for seven international journals and reviews grants for the National Institutes of Health, Veterans Administration, and many national and international foundations. His laboratory has been continuously funded by research grants since 2005. Dr. Patel was initially skeptical about the ability of the mind to impact health, but after reviewing early evidence, he was convinced more research needed to be done to discover the power and impact of meditation on biological markers that would define the mind-body connection. Today, he is actively involved in using an unbiased, discovery-based approach to reveal basic insights into how the meditating mind creates physical changes to alter the biology of living systems. Dr. Patel’s laboratory is poised to link physics, biophysics, and biology to potentially transform our understanding of the mind’s power to change human health.
