David D. McManus, MD, is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist at the University of
Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) and cardiovascular outcomes researcher at the Meyers
Primary Care Institute (MPCI). His goal is to improve our understanding of the
epidemiology of atrial fibrillation (AF) in order to prevent AF and better treat patients
with this increasingly prevalent arrhythmia. He is currently using the rich databases of
the Cardiovascular Research Network (CVRN) to describe the contemporary epidemiology of
patients with AF and heart failure (HF). He has published in the areas of AF and HF
epidemiology, cardiac remodeling, and completed a cardiovascular epidemiology fellowship
at the Framingham Heart Study (FHS).
