European Society of Cardiology

Dr. Nakamura is director of preclinical research at the UW Medicine Heart Regeneration Program. This translational research focuses on pluripotent stem cell-based cardiac remuscularization therapies using various preclinical models to optimize the efficacy, safety, engraftment and maturation of cardiomyocyte transplantation through novel genetic, metabolic, immunomodulatory, antiarrhythmic and delivery strategies. Dr. Nakamura obtained his medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco and clinical training at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School with post-doctoral studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington and directs the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at the VA Puget Sound Healthcare System.
