Dr. Gregg Shander’s research on the heart’s electrical functions adds a new dimension to The Chattanooga Heart Institute’s renowned electrophysiology expertise. Dr. Shander has been interested in heart rhythm disturbances since he was in medical school. He received the Stanley J. Sarnoff award for cardiovascular research through which he studied rhythm disturbances. He transferred this interest from research into the care of his patients.

Dr. Shander earned his doctor of medicine degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and completed his internal medicine internship and residency at the University of Chicago Hospital. He performed research involving arrhythmias at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and the University of Chicago. He completed his general cardiology and electrophysiology fellowships at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, where he received further training in cardiac pacing and clinical electrophysiology including radiofrequency ablation.

Dr. Shander received the American Heart Association Basic Sciences Research Award from the Chicago Chapter. He has also presented before the American Heart Association’s scientific sessions and at numerous other cardiovascular research symposiums. He has been published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, the Journal of American Physiology, the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, and the supplement to the American Heart Association’s journal, Circulation.

Dr. Shander, his wife, and two children enjoy spending time doing activities as a family.
