Ryota Teramoto

Ryota trained in Cardiology at Kanazawa University Hospital, one of the highest volume cardiomyopathy hospitals in Japan. His Ph.D. thesis studied the genetic background of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and Ryota has had a lasting interest in the pathophysiology of inherited cardiomyopathies ever since. Currently, Ryota studies the genetic pathways that cause inherited cardiomyopathies in humans using zebrafish as animal model in an effort to identify novel methods to prevent and treat the diseases.
