Dalane W. Kitzman, MD

Professor of Internal Medicine - Cardiology

A cardiologist whose research focuses on heart failure, especially in the elderly, Kitzman's work has been funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the American Heart Association. He was among the first to identify diastolic heart failure as a distinct type of disease. Another research focus is improving echocardiography as a diagnostic tool. Kitzman has served on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, chaired an NIA study section of clinical aging, and is a past president of the Society for Geriatric Cardiology.
