Arthur J Moss MD
Dr. Arthur J. Moss received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University in 1953 and his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 1957. He completed his internship and residency at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and postgraduate training in cardiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York.
Dr. Moss is Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) and Founding Director of the Heart Research Follow-up Program at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He is a member of the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, and the Heart Rhythm Society, and has authored over 600 scientific medical articles and four medical books. He is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Noninvasive Electrocardiology and sits on the editorial boards of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, American Journal of Cardiology, Heart Rhythm, Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, and Folia Cardiologica.
Dr. Moss’s research and clinical interests are in the areas of genetic and acquired heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias), acute and chronic coronary heart disease, and prevention of sudden cardiac death, as well as clinical trials involving drugs and devices (Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial [MADIT]). He has served as a consultant to the FDA for drugs used in the prevention and treatment of heart disease. His major scientific accomplishments involve the study of mechanical and electrical risk factors in coronary heart disease, investigations into lipid and clotting factors that contribute to coronary disease, clinical trials involving the implanted defibrillator and resynchronization therapy in high-risk cardiac patients, electrocardiology, phenotype/genotype investigations of the inherited long QT syndrome, and studies of drug-induced ventricular repolarization and heart rhythm disorders.
