About Sanjiv Narayan, MD, PhD, FHRS

Dr. Narayan is Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, where he is also Director of the NIH T32 Computational Medicine Training Program (CHIP) and Co-Director of the Arrhythmia Center. His laboratory works at the intersection of cardiac electrophysiology, bioengineering and data science to improve patient care. His group pioneered computerized mapping for AF and VT via studies that defined localized conduction and repolarization dynamics and have identified novel ablation targets. His Lab has been funded continuously since 2001 by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, Fulbright Foundation and other agencies. He trained in software and data engineering and medicine at UCLA, Harvard/Mount Auburn, Washington University in St. Louis, UC Berkeley, Birmingham UK, and the Royal College of Physicians of London. Our trainees have won research prizes each year since 2003, and in 2022 Dr. Narayan received the Distinguished Scientist Award from HRS. He and his wife have 3 children and together they love travel, going to the gym and learning languages and history.
