Blavatnik Fund Invests in Technology for the Diagnosis of Heart Disease

What differentiates the Blavatnik Fund for Innovation at Yale is the opportunity to work with consultants to further develop and promote Yale faculty-led projects. This year’s awardees include Rohan Khera, MD, MS, an assistant professor of medicine (cardiovascular medicine) and biostatistics (health informatics) at the Yale School of Medicine. The project, ENSIGHT-AI, focuses on enhancing the detection capabilities of electrocardiograms (ECGs), by identifying signatures of structural heart diseases, which currently require advanced cardiac imaging. The innovative work of the CarDS Lab has received significant recognition. The $300,000 from the Blavatnik Fund for Innovation at Yale awarded to Khera.
