Ph.D, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine; Director Adult Cardiovascular Genetics, Duke University School of Medicine; Duke Molecular Physiology Institute
Dr. Svati Shah is a physician scientist and Vice-Chief of Translational Research in the Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, and a faculty member and Co-Director of Translational Research in the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute (DMPI) and Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). Her research focus is on metabolic and genetic pathways of cardiometabolic diseases, integrating diverse genomic, metabolomic and proteomic techniques for identification of novel mechanisms of disease and biomarkers. Her multi disciplinary molecular epidemiology lab within the DMPI has quantitative and molecular components and leverages several large cardiovascular biorepositories on which she is PI or co-I to perform discovery studies using omics technologies, with subsequent functional validation for mechanistic insight. Dr. Shah also collaborates closely with the DCRI for biomarker discovery in biospecimens from clinical trials and she is the Duke PI for the Verily Project Baseline study. Dr. Shah is also Director of the Duke Adult Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic where she cares for patients and their families who have, or at risk of, cardiovascular genetic disorders. Her training includes receiving a M.H.S. in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, a Master’s degree in Medical Genomics from Duke University.
