Hall of Fame Honor for Trayanova

Winter 2020

Natalia Trayanova

Natalia Trayanova, the Murray B. Sachs Professor of Biomedical Engineering, co-director of the Alliance for Cardiovascular Diagnostic and Treatment Innovation, and a member of the Institute for Computational Medicine, was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame in June. Each year, the WITI Hall of Fame selects five women from around the world for this honor.

Trayanova pioneered the use of 3D virtual heart models that are personalized using data from individual patients with ventricular or atrial fibrillation, two types of irregular heartbeats. With these heart replicas, she and her clinical collaborators are able to predict who is at risk for sudden death or stroke from ventricular or atrial fibrillation, as well as determine the optimal patient-specific treatments for these disorders.
