Dr. Alexander’s clinical and research interests include cardiac amyloidosis, cardiac sarcoidosis, and mechanical circulatory support. His primary interest lies in cardiac amyloidosis, in particular unraveling the molecular determinants of transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy to improve the diagnose and treatment of this disease. He has co-authored numerous publications on cardiac amyloidosis and has received multiple research grants in this field, including from the National Institutes of Health and Pfizer. He recently received a 4-year Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Award through the American Heart Association to support his studies in transthyretin cardiomyopathy.
