      Dr. Rahul Deo was born and raised in Canada and earned his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College and PhD in Molecular Biophysics from the Rockefeller University as part of the Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Cardiology Fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He then conducted postdoctoral research in human genetics and computational biology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Deo’s clinical and research interests involve bringing large-scale genetic and genomic data and emerging computational approaches towards the goal of personalized diagnosis and therapy in cardiovascular medicine. He focuses on patients with inherited cardiovascular disease, particularly cardiomyopathies.
