Rima Arnaout, MD

Associate Professor of Cardiology; Bakar Institute's Cardiology Clinical Lead

Dr. Arnaout is a physician-scientist with a background in genetics, clinical research and programming, and a practicing cardiologist board-certified in multi-modality cardiovascular imaging. She studied Biology and Bioengineering at MIT, and got her MD at Harvard. She did her Residency in Internal Medicine at MGH, and trained as a Cardiology Fellow at UCSF. Her research aims to improve the resolution and accuracy of cardiovascular phenotypes, thus leading to novel insights and therapies.

Research Overview:

Improving the resolution and accuracy of cardiovascular phenotypes to develop novel insights and therapies
Dr. Arnaout’s lab is currently developing computational methods to bring precision phenotyping to echocardiography, and also using the zebrafish animal model to study cardiovascular developmental gene function and to model human cardiovascular disease.
