Trayanova Lab

Pr. Natalia Trayanova is the inaugural Murray B. Sachs Endowed Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and a professor in the Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. She is also faculty of the Institute for Computational Medicine and director of the Computational Cardiology Laboratory. The basic science research in Trayanova’s Computational Cardiology Laboratory focuses on understanding the pathological electrophysiological and electromechanical behavior of the heart, with emphasis on the mechanisms for cardiac arrhythmogenesis and pump dysfunction. Importantly, Trayanova’s work also has a strong translational component, which centers on improving the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Using a personalized MRI-based simulation approach, Trayanova is developing new methods for the risk stratification of sudden cardiac death and improving the accuracy and success of atrial and ventricular ablation therapies.

Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory

Pr. Hugh Calkins is the Nicholas J. Fortuin M.D. Professor of Cardiology and Professor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He also is the Director of the Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory, the Arrhythmia Service, and the Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia Program at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Having more than 35 years of diverse experiences, especially in cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease (Cardiology), Internal medicine, Dr. Hugh G Calkins affiliates with many hospitals including Johns Hopkins Hospital.
