SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- FirstMark, the diagnostic division of GenWay Biotech, announced today that Dr. Prediman K. (PK) Shah has joined its Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. Shah is Professor at Cedars-Sinai Professorial Series and Director of the Division of Cardiology.

Dr. Shah holds the Shapell and Webb Family Chair in Clinical Cardiology at Cedars-Sinai. Dr. Shah has been Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) since 1992.
