Ashish Doshi awarded 2018 AHA Postdoctoral Fellowship
Ashish Doshi, a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute for Computational Medicine has been awarded a 2018 Fellowship from the American Heart Association. The two year award will support Doshi’s research project titled, “Personalized, image-based computational models for ventricular arrhythmia risk assessment in myocarditis” Doshi works in the laboratory of Natalia Trayanova, ICM core faculty member and Murray B. Sachs Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
Doshi’s project will use cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging data from patients with acute and prior myocarditis to develop computational models that simulate ventricular arrhythmias in these patients. Furthermore, the project will evaluate whether image-based computational models can determine which patients with myocarditis are at risk of ventricular arrhythmias.
The American Heart Association awards annual fellowships to early career professionals in healthcare and academia to enhance integrated research and clinical training and to enable recipients to develop academic careers in research alongside fulfilling clinical service commitments.
