Arshed A. Quyyumi, MD

Professor of Medicine
Emory University
Emory University

Dr. Quyyumi is currently a tenured Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at Emory University School of Medicine and Co-Director at Emory Clinical Cardiovascular Research Institute. His research focus over the last quarter century has been on clinical and translational research in vascular biology, progenitor cells and angiogenesis, biomarkers and cardiovascular genomics. He has performed seminal studies investigating mechanisms of myocardial ischemia including silent ischemia in the past. His current studies include comprehensive assessment of vascular endothelial function and arterial stiffness and thickness in patients with arteriosclerosis and its risk factors. Other studies investigate the role of genetic and environmental risks on vascular disease, and particularly in relation to health disparities. He is also conducting clinical trials with bone marrow derived stem cells and progenitors in cardiovascular disease. He has published over 350 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals.

Arash Harzand, MD, MBA

Fellow in Training
Emory University School of Medicine

Arash Harzand is a Fellow in Cardiovascular Disease and an aspiring physician-scientist in cardiovascular disease and mobile technology at Emory University. His research interests include studying the role of mobile technologies and digital biomarkers in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Harzand was a Research Fellow at the Atlanta VA where he developed the initial pilot of a smartphone-enabled, home-based cardiac rehabilitation program, and previously served as Chief Resident in Quality and Patient Safety where he was involved with developing a virtual monitoring and early prediction application for patients with congestive heart failure using wearable devices and machine learning applications. He was recognized for his cardiac rehabilitation work as a Second Place Finalist at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2017 Young Investigator Competition. Dr. Harzand currently serves on the Fellows-in-Training Editorial Board for the ACC and has been an early supporter of the newly formed Innovation Members Section for the ACC. His clinical and research interests include cardiovascular prevention and vascular medicine.
