    Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
    On Partial Leave from 09/05/2023 To 06/30/2024

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Narayan directs the Computational Arrhythmia Research Laboratory, whose goal is to define the mechanisms underlying complex human heart rhythm disorders, to develop bioengineering-focused solutions to improve therapy that will be tested in clinical trials. The laboratory has been funded continuously since 2001 by the National Institutes of Health, AHA and ACC, and interlinks a disease-focused group of clinicians, computational physicists, bioengineers and trialists.

  • Koen Nieman

    Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and of Radiology (CV Imaging)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr Nieman investigates advanced cardiac imaging techniques. Current projects focus on the development of functional CT application for hemodynamic interpretation of coronary artery disease, and the clinical validation of cardiac CT in the management of patients with ischemic heart disease.

  • Joyce Njoroge, MD

    Joyce Njoroge, MD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    BioDr. Njoroge is a board-certified physician and fellowship-trained cardiologist with the Advanced Heart Failure Program at Stanford Health Care. She is also a clinical assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.

    Dr. Njoroge has extensive clinical experience diagnosing and treating cardiovascular complications that develop during pregnancy or postpartum. She currently provides care at the Stanford Health Care Heart and Vascular Clinic with a particular focus on patients with a history of pregnancy-associated heart failure and cardiomyopathy.

    Dr. Njoroge’s research efforts involve identifying inherited genetic changes and biological markers that could help improve screening and care for pregnant women in higher risk populations. This includes determining the causes of disproportionately high incidences of heart-related complications and deaths experienced by Black women during and after pregnancy. Dr. Njoroge is also currently recruiting patients for a large-scale, multicenter clinical trial evaluating a drug to treat cardiovascular complications during pregnancy.

    Dr. Njoroge has published her work in numerous prestigious peer-reviewed journals, including Circulation Research and the Journal of Cardiac Failure. She also co-authored a chapter on cardiovascular disease in pregnancy in the most recent edition of the book Current Diagnosis and Treatment: Cardiology.

    Dr. Njoroge is a member of the Association of Black Cardiologists, the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, and the Heart Failure Society of America.
