Salim Farouk Idriss
Associate Professor of Pediatrics

I am primarily interested in the effects of age and development on cardiac electrical stability. The electrical properties of the myocardium continue to develop and mature after birth. These changes may affect susceptibility to malignant arrhythmias at different ages. I am investigating these changes in collaboration with faculty in Biomedical Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics.
I have a second interest in real-time three-dimensional echocardiography for visualization and guidance of interventional electrophysiologic procedures.
