David Kao MD

  • Cardiology (SOM)

Research Description

In addition to clinical training in internal medicine and cardiology fellowship in Colorado, Dr. Kao has been engaged in biomedical research for over 20 years and heart failure research continuously since 2004. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the biomedical informatics research at Stanford, and his research now focuses on applying informatics and big data methods to study the complexities of heart failure and develop personalized methods of management. He approaches this by incorporating many patient features (demographics, other diseases, perceived health status) into a holistic view of patients that can guide treatment. Dr. Kao has a particular interest in sex differences in heart failure and has been fortunate to work with the Ludeman Family Center for Women’s Health Research for several years.
