Posts by Saumya Das, MD, PhD


After finishing college, medical school and graduate school at Harvard Medical School, I graduated with an MD-PhD in 2000. I completed my training in internal medicine, cardiovascular sciences and clinical electrophysiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, where I am was on staff from 2007-2011. I was then at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center as the Co-director of the Cardiovascular Genetics Center and ran an active research program on RNA biomarkers for heart failure and arrhythmias. I was recruited back to MGH and am the co-director of the Resynchronization and Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics Program. I am seeing general cardiac arrhythmia patients, with a special emphasis on patients with inherited arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies and sudden cardiac death. My research focuses on understanding mechanisms of arrhythmias in heart failure, discovering new tests to provide better identification of patients at risk of developing heart failure or arrhythmias, and uncovering new therapies to treat heart failure. I see patients with a range of cardiac arrhythmia problems, including heart failure, supraventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
