Alexander Fanaroff, MD, MHS, is an interventional cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. He completed medical school, internal medicine residency, cardiology fellowship, and interventional cardiology fellowship at Duke University. He received a MHS in clinical research from the Duke/NIH Clinical Research Training Program during a two-year research fellowship at the Duke Clinical Research Institute.
Dr. Fanaroff’s research focuses on identifying areas in which cardiovascular care is delivered inefficiently, variably, or is limited by patients’ inability to change their behavior, developing broadly implementable, technology-based solutions to improve care delivery, and deploying the intervention and measuring its effect on patient care, ideally in pragmatic clinical trials. He is also interested in better characterizing the evidence base and clinical trials environment in cardiology.
His research has been published in JAMA, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Circulation, European Heart Journal, and JAMA Cardiology, among others. His research is currently funded by the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health.
