Clinical Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. Francois Haddad, MD is a Clinical Professor of Medicine that specializes in the field of cardio-vascular imaging, pulmonary hypertension, advanced heart failure and transplantation. Dr. Haddad has over 18 years of practice in the field of cardiology. He directs Stanford Cardiovascular Institute Biomarker and Phenotypic Core Laboratory dedicated to translational studies in cardiovascular medicine. The laboratory focuses on (1) identifying early biomarkers of heart failure and aging, (2) bioengineering approaches to cardiovascular disease modeling and (3) novel informatic approach for the detection and risk stratification of disease. He is involved is several precision medicine initiatives in health including the Project Baseline, the Integrated Personalized Omics Profiling Initiative, the Athletic screening program at Stanford and the Strong-D cardiac rehabilitation initiative in individuals with diabetes mellitus.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Cardiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAdult Congenital Heart Disease
Professor (Research) of Medicine, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy major research interests and activities over the next several years will focus on the development and evaluation of the objective measurement of physical activity in free-living populations using a variety of sensing devices and mobile phones for data collection and processing. Also, I will continue to direct the Stanford Heart Network with the major mission being to assist community-based CVD prevention/treatment programs implement more effective heart attack and stroke prevention programs.
Paul Heidenreich, MD
Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests include
1) The cost-effectiveness of new cardiovascular technologies.
Example: tests to screen asymptomatic patients for left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
2) Interventions to improve the quality of care of patients with heart disease. Examples: include clinical reminders and home monitoring.
3) Outcomes research using existing clinical and administrative datasets.
4) Use of echocardiography to predict prognosis (e.g. diastolic dysfunction).
Mark Hlatky, MD
Professor of Health Policy, of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy main research work is in "outcomes research", especially examining the field of cardiovascular medicine. Particular areas of interest are the integration of economic and quality of life data into randomized clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, decision models, and cost-effectiveness analysis. I am also interested in the application of novel genetic, biomarker, and imaging tests to assess risk and guide clinical management of coronary artery disease.
Benjamin Davies Horne
Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated), Medicine - Med/Cardiovascular Medicine
Staff, Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research - Lab
BioDr. Benjamin Horne is a Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) who is based at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Salt Lake City, UT, where he serves as the Director of Cardiovascular and Genetic Epidemiology. His doctoral training (PhD) in genetic epidemiology was completed at the University of Utah and he holds masters degrees in public health and in biostatistics. Dr. Horne is a fellow of the American Heart Association and a fellow of the American College of Cardiology. Dr. Horne’s research focuses on population health and precision medicine, including evaluating the genetic epidemiology of heart diseases, developing and implementing clinical decision tools for personalizing medical care, discovering the human health effects of intermittent fasting, and studying the influences of air pollution on major adverse health events.
