Brief Biography

Elsayed Z. Soliman returns to Egypt from the United States, where he served as a tenured professor of Epidemiology and Medicine (Cardiology) at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, North Carolina. As a noted physician-scientist, Soliman brings a wealth of experience in epidemiology and public health, education, and clinical research to the AUC. He has devoted the past two decades to an academic career that combines research, administration, teaching, and advocacy.

During his tenure with Wake Forest School of Medicine, he served as director of the Epidemiological Cardiology research center, a pioneering center in population electrocardiography and cardiovascular epidemiology in the United States. Through his over 500 peer-reviewed manuscripts published in leading medical journals, Soliman is credited with numerous cardiovascular epidemiology and public health advancements, including developing novel models and markers to diagnose and predict cardiovascular diseases. Soliman has mentored multiple trainees from different institutions throughout the United States and served as co-director of the Wake Forest Cardialgy research fellowship program. For his achievements and contributions, he has been awarded the Wake Forest Investigator Award (2007, 2009), Wake Forest team science award (2011, 2013, 2016), Wake Forest Mentoring Award (2016), and Tinsley Harrison Research Scholar Mentor Award (2016, 2017). In 2012, he was elected as a Fellow of the American Heart Association (FAHA) and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC).

Before joining Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Soliman served as a Medical Advisor to Malawi's government-sponsored by the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa-, and a United Nations Medical Doctor (UNV) in Trinidad and Tobago. He also served as an Adviser to the World Health Organization (WHO) and led two WHO-sponsored studies in Malawi and another in Sri Lanka. Chairing and serving on several U.S. research working groups and funding organizations are just examples of recognizing his multidisciplinary vast expertise.

Soliman obtained his doctor of medicine degree from Cairo University. He also received a master’s degree in cardiovascular medicine from Egypt before moving to the United States. He obtained a master’s degree in epidemiology and health services research from Wake Forest University.
