Diagnosing Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
Studies estimate that POTS affects between 0.5 million and 3 million individuals in the U.S., although Tae Chung — one of the few doctors treating adult patients with POTS in the country — says this number is probably low. “Some patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or who struggle with no diagnosis probably have this condition,” he says.

Firas Mawase Receives the Alfred Blalock Research Award
Post-doctoral fellow Firas Mawase was honored as part of the 2018 Young Investigators Day. Firas and his team at the Human Brain Physiology and Stimulation Lab have developed a novel motor skill training protocol and showed that individualized and intense motor skill training improves finger dexterity and basic hand functions, and reduces abnormal finger flexion synergy in people with chronic stroke.
"I found that Johns Hopkins is unique because it is home to experts in clinical practice and research, and it integrates clinical practice and research, making it an ideal location to tackle challenging clinical problems with cutting-edge approaches," says Firas.
