Interested in the prevention of cardiac and aortic diseases, and in the use of genetic information to inform cardiovascular care.
Dr. Pirruccello studies cardiovascular and aortic diseases using machine learning and genetics. He uses machine learning to quantify the heart, and to create new types of measurements that can help us to better understand health and disease. He uses genetics to analyze these measurements to gain insight into mechanisms of disease. Further, Dr. Pirruccello uses both genetics and machine learning to develop tools to better understand risk, before the onset of disease.
