Dr. Landstrom is a physician-scientist from the Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina, in the United States. He is trained at the confluence of pediatric cardiology, pediatric electrophysiology, human genetics, and molecular biology which he applies towards the care for children with heritable arrhythmic disease of the heart. He leads a heritable arrhythmia clinic specializing in diagnosing, risk-stratification, and treatment of infants, children, and their families with sudden cardiac death-predisposing diseases. He leads a basic science research program exploring the genetic and molecular causes of sudden cardiac death in children and young adults. He utilizes patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells and mouse models of arrhythmic and cardiomyopathic disease to couple with functional genetics for novel discovery.
