Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Tschabrunn is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Director of the Translational Electrophysiology Laboratory, and Associate Director of the Penn Cardiac Arrhythmia Translational Center of Excellence at the University of Pennsylvania. His primary research interest is on the development of clinically relevant translational research models to further elucidate arrhythmogenic pathophysiology and mechanisms underlying complex arrhythmias. In addition, these models serve as the basis for investigations to evaluate new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for the treatment of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. He has authored or co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, abstracts, and book-chapters. Dr. Tschabrunn provides frequent lectures nationally and internationally relating to his research and the field of cardiac electrophysiology.
