Cardiovascular Genetics Program

Inherited arrhythmias, genetic disorders in the heart's electrical system, are known causes of sudden cardiac death, even though the heart is structurally normal.

The NYU Cardiovascular Genetics Program merges the world’s leading research and technologies to offer comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and disease management services for adults and children at risk for inherited cardiac disease.

About the Center

NYU Medical Center’s cardiovascular genetics specialists are a multidisciplinary team of internationally recognized physician scientists who collaborate to apply the latest inherited cardiac disease research discoveries directly to patient care.

Genetic Conditions

Our cardiovascular genetics experts specialize in treating inherited channelopathies (Brugada Syndrome, Long QT Syndrome, Short QT Syndrome, Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia, and Idiopathic Ventricular Tachycardia/Ventricular Fibrillation) and inherited cardiomyopathies (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, and Dilated Cardiomyopathy).

Our Services

The NYU Cardiovascular Genetics Program offers comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and management of those who are at risk for or have an inherited cardiac disorder.


The NYU Cardiovascular Genetics Program's cutting-edge clinical and basic science research focuses on the genetic causes of inherited cardiac diseases and mechanisms of arrhythmias and sudden death.
