Biography

Dr. Harikrishna Tandri is the co-director of the Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD) program and an assistant professor of medicine in the division of Cardiology. He has been involved in innovating new methods and devices for treating arrhythmias while reducing the pain of cardiac defibrillation, and for rapidly cooling vulnerable brain and spinal tissue to protect them during cardiac arrest.

Dr. Tandri studied medicine at the University of Health Sciences in India and the Royal College of Physicians in England. He completed residencies in internal medicine and cardiology in India, England, and at the Harbor Hospital Center in Baltimore. Dr. Tandri then pursued fellowships in ARVD research and electrophysiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He joined the faculty in 2008.

Dr. Tandri has received numerous awards, including BME IDEA of the Year for his Rapid Hypothermia Device. He has published nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, many on the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and ARVD.
