Mark is a Pediatric Cardiology Fellow at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. He joined the lab in 2015 as part of his NIH T32 supported research on arrhythmia in congenital heart disease and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He completed his MD in 2010 at the Medical College of Virginia. Prior to his fellowship at Hopkins, he completed his pediatric residency and chief residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
His work in the Computational Cardiology lab has combined his clinical interests with the strengths of the ongoing research in the lab. He has tailored the lab’s pipeline and Virtual Arrhythmia Risk Predictor (VARP) protocol to assess risk of ventricular tachycardia in patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot, the most common form of cyanotic congenital heart disease. He has also helped develop a disease specific risk stratification and computational modeling pipeline for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This collaborative effort involves not only several members of the Trayanova lab but also physician-scientists in other departments at Hopkins as well as in Florence, Italy. Aside from these projects, he is excited about using lessons learned working with Tetralogy of Fallot and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in other pediatric and congenital heart diseases with a high risk of arrhythmia.
