Bio

Dr. Sotoodehnia, the John and Cookie Laughlin Endowed Professor in Cardiology, is co-director of the Cardiovascular Health Research Unit. She is a general cardiologist at Harborview Medical Center.

She conducts research on the genomics and epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases and risk factors. Her research focus includes cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac arrest, diabetes and coronary heart disease. She and her group are leading efforts in precision medicine, examining drug-gene interactions, risk prediction and drug safety. Her work investigates gender and ethnic differences in cardiovascular risk and outcomes. In addition, she has a long interest in international health and is helping lead efforts in cardiovascular treatments in Nepal.

Research Interests

  • Preventive cardiology
  • Arrhythmias including sudden cardiac death and atrial fibrillation
  • Coronary heart disease
