About Us

Director: Silvia G. Priori, MD, PhD

Recently there have been impressive advances in the understanding of the genetic substrate for cardiac diseases, arrhythmias, and sudden death. In the field of cardiovascular genetics, clinical cardiologists partner with basic scientists to understand the mechanisms of these diseases, conduct experimental studies, and use the data to improve clinical management, treatment, and quality of life for people affected.

The Cardiovascular Genetics Center at NYU Langone Medical Center provides comprehensive evaluation, counseling, and treatment by a team of clinical experts in inherited cardiac diseases. The Center includes a laboratory for novel research into the genetic causes of inherited cardiac diseases and mechanisms of arrhythmias and sudden death.

The Center's experts in the field of inherited cardiovascular diseases team with the other clinical services in the NYU Division of Cardiology and with the Molecular Cardiology Laboratories in the Fondazione Maugeri of Pavia, Italy to offer the best of care for people with cardiovascular disorders caused by inherited genetic mutations.
