Katheryn E Gambetta, MD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology)

Focus of Work


My specialty area is Heart Failure and Heart Transplant so one of my long term goals is to be able to engage in research that improves function in cardiomyopathies to lessen the need for heart transplantation, and to improve the quality of life for children who have undergone heart transplantation. I am very interested in pharmacogenomics, regenerative therapies and the genetics of cardiomyopathies.
