CLINICAL INTERESTS: Dr. Vedantham is cardiologist and clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, specializing in treatment of heart rhythm disorders using catheter ablation, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation, and antiarrhythmic medications. Specific conditions include supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, ventricular tachycardia, bradycardia, syncope, and sudden cardiac death. He also implants biventricular devices for cardiac resynchronization therapy in patients with heart failure.
RESEARCH INTERESTS: Dr. Vedantham’s research focuses on the molecular biology of the electrical system of the heart. His specific area of interest is understanding how transcription factors, microRNAs, and other regulatory molecules cooperatively determine the electrical properties of different types of heart cell by controlling the differential expression of ion channels in normal development and in heart disease. To address this problem, Dr. Vedantham combines molecular biology techniques with electrophysiological studies in genetically engineered mouse models. His goal is to make advances in basic cardiovascular science that will lead to improvements in the treatment and prevention of arrhythmias.
