Sneha Shah Jain MD, MBA
Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other
Fellow in Medicine
BioDr. Sneha S. Jain is a fellow in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. She previously was an internal medicine resident at Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian, during which time she was selected as a Silverman Fellow in Healthcare Innovation. In this capacity, she worked with clinical and data science partners to build and deploy the technological infrastructure to identify patients with certain cardiac conditions earlier in the course of their disease. She received her MD from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and her MBA from Harvard Business School. She graduated with distinction from Duke University with a BS in Economics. During her time at Harvard Business School, she worked at Moderna Therapeutics and the VC firm Flare Capital.
Her research and entrepreneurial interests focus on the development and clinical trials of digital health and machine learning to reimagine healthcare delivery models and improve patient outcomes in cardiology.
Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe identified a common disorder of aging called clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP). CHIP occurs due to certain somatic mutations in blood stem cells and represents a precursor state for blood cancer, but is also associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death. We hope to understand more about the biology and clinical implications of CHIP using human and model system studies.
Nerea Jimenez Tellez
Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiovascular Institute
BioNerea is a Postdoctoral Scholar at Dr. Joseph Wu's lab. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain). She was in an exchange program at the University of Saskatchewan (Canada) where she completed her Honours Thesis project on the Regulation of the Metastasis Suppressor Protein CREB3L1 in Dr. Deborah H Anderson's lab. She received her Masters' degree at Universidad de Alcalá (Spain) working at Dr. Isabel Liste Noya's lab on The role of p27Kip1 in the pluripotency and differentiation of dopaminergic neurons. She obtained her Ph.D. in Dr. Naweed Syed's lab studying the Cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying anesthetic-induced cytotoxicity, and their impact on learning and memory.
Roy Mattathu John, MD, PhD, FRCP
Clinical Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. John is a fellowship-trained cardiologist with more than 25 years of experience. He is a clinical professor in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine.
He originally earned board certification in clinical cardiac electrophysiology in 1996 and has continued to recertify. He also has earned board certification in cardiovascular disease and internal medicine.
Dr. John diagnoses and manages all forms of cardiac arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias. His special interests include catheter ablation for SVT, atrial arrhythmias, pacemaker and defibrillator implants, and lead extraction.
He has conducted extensive research. He has participated in large multi-center clinical trials, including over 30 studies as a primary investigator of drugs, devices, and ablation techniques. He helped pioneer a new way to manage scar-related ventricular tachycardia. He also helped develop innovations in cardiac pacemaker technology.
Dr. John has authored over 200 publications that include 126 original research papers. They have appeared in reputed journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation, Lancet, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, European Heart Journal, Heart Rhythm, Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, and many more. Topics have included innovative, new techniques and technologies for the treatment of supraventricular arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, catheter ablation, lead extraction, cardiac pacing, and defibrillation.
He was a member of the editorial board for Circulation and is currently on the editorial board of the publications Heart Rhythm Journal, Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, Journal of Cardiac Electrophysiology, and Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management.
Dr. John also has written several chapters for medical textbooks such as Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Zipes Textbook on Cardiac Electrophysiology - Cell to Bedside, Conn’s Current Therapy, Electrical Disorders of the Heart, Cardiac Mapping, and many more.
He has made invited presentations to his peers at scientific sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society, American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Failure Society. He has delivered more than 60 national and international lectures. Subjects include cardiac pacing, defibrillation, heart failure, and arrhythmia management including catheter ablation for arrhythmias.
Dr. John is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, Heart Rhythm Society, and Royal College of Physicians of London.
He has volunteered his time and expertise to provide free cardiac care to underserved patients in Bolivia, India, and Kenya.
