    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Rima Arnaout is an Assistant Professor in Cardiology. She studies the genetic basis of heart development and disease at the Cardiovascular Research Institute, with a special interest in cardiomyopathy and arrhythmia. Working with Professor Shaun Coughlin, she uses zebrafish to study developmental gene function and to model human disease. She also studies heart disease using human genetics. Her clinical interests include general cardiology, cardiovascular genetics, and multi-modality imaging.
