Faye Norby, PhD, MPH
I am a cardiovascular epidemiologist. My research encompasses the prevention and prediction of cardiac and neurological events, mainly centered around cardiac arrhythmias such as sudden cardiac arrest and atrial fibrillation. My work is currently focused on three areas: investigating sudden death and adverse cardiac outcomes related to substance use; examining biomarkers and ‘omics to improve the prediction and prevention of cardiovascular outcomes; and determining how heart structure and function affect cognitive decline, strokes, and dementia. I also conduct pharmacoepidemiology studies to determine the best treatment approaches, and examine drug-to-drug interactions that result in adverse outcomes. I have extensive experience analyzing large administrative data sources (i.e. Medicare, EHR data), and long-term cohort studies, such as the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study.
