Dr. Landstrom completed an MD and PhD at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine where he conducted research in cardiovascular disease genetics and identified novel genes which cause cardiac hypertrophy and cardiomyopathy. He then completed pediatrics residency, pediatric cardiology fellowship, and an advanced fellowship in pediatric electrophysiology at Texas Children's Hospital at Baylor College of Medicine. There, he also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in cell and molecular physiology and received a K08 training grant. In summer of this year, he was recruited to join Duke's Department of Pediatrics as a cardiologist specializing in the diagnosis and management of sudden-cardiac death predisposing arrhythmias and the evaluation of sudden unexplained death in infants and children. He is building a basic translational lab exploring the genetic and molecular causes of these diseases with a close tie to the patients that he sees in clinic.
