Doctor Robert M Hamilton

University of Toronto, Toronto (Canada)

Dr. Hamilton is a cardiologist, heart rhythm specialist and scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children and Research Institute, Toronto, Canada. He is a senior electrophysiologist, manages an inherited arrhythmia clinic, and has gained a unique perspective on the clinical impact of hereditary heart rhythm conditions on children and families. His research is focused on expanding the understanding of these inherited arrhythmia conditions and improving their diagnosis. Dr. Hamilton has particular interest and expertise in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), Brugada Syndrome (BrS) and Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT). Each of these conditions is difficult to diagnose, particularly because underlying responsible genes often cannot be found in the affected families. The Hamilton lab is developing highly accurate blood tests for these conditions that do not depend on genetic findings. Time outside of work is with family, cottage and sailing.
