Dr. Robert Weiss is a Clarence Doodeman professor of cardiology as well as a professor of medicine and radiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Weiss directs a multi-disciplinary team at Johns Hopkins as well as collaborators at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles are dedicated to identifying the most important clinical, genetic, structural, contractile and metabolic causes of sudden cardiac death as well as the means to reverse the underlying pathology and lower risk. His research interests include energetic consequences and causes of heart failure, predictors of sudden cardiac death, non-invasive magnetic resonance, role of creatine kinase in heart failure, spectroscopy and imaging, coronary endothelial function and small animal cardiovascular imaging.

Dr. Weiss received an undergraduate degree in physics form Dickinson College and a medical degree from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine AOA Hershey Medical Center before joining Johns Hopkins in 1983 as an intern and assistant resident. 

Dr. Weiss has published extensively and has most recently been awarded a fellowship with the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. more
