“Believe in yourself. If there is a will, there is always a way!”

 —Ronglih Liao, PhD, FAHA

Dr. Liao, who focuses on basic science research, has been volunteering with the American Heart Association almost three decades and currently serves as Chair of the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences.

Her work promotes mentorship as a high-level tool of leadership encouraging female scientists to pursue their dream.  As she says, “This is what scientific research is all about, it is a passion rather than a job.” That’s a key premise of the May 2016 article, Ronglih Liao: Science as a Lifestyle and it’s also reflected in her May 2017 commentary, From the BCVS Chair, both published in Circulation Research.
