Dr. Vaseghi is currently Associate Professor of Medicine in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. She is the Director of Clinical and Translational Research at the UCLA Cardiac Arrhythmias Center, overseeing translational and clinical studies related to cardiac arrhythmias. She is a faculty of the Molecular, Cellular, & Integrative Physiology Interdepartmental Program and Neurcardiology Program of Excellence. She is the winner of the 2015 NIH New Innovator Award and has published over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Vaseghi received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University and her M.D. from Stanford University. She obtained her Masters in Clinical Research and PhD in Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology from UCLA and completed her residency in Internal Medicine, cardiology fellowship and cardiac electrophysiology fellowship at UCLA. Her lab has done extensive work characterizing pathophysiological mechanisms behind the cardiac autonomic nervous system remodeling that predisposes to ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death. She is an investigator on multiple National Institute of Health studies and serves on editorial board of American Journal of Physiology Heart and Circulatory Physiology and Heart Rhythm Journal.
