Elad Anter, is an Endowed Professor of Medicine, Associate Section Head of Cardiac Electrophysiology, and Director of the Josephson-Wit Research Laboratory in the Electrophysiology Section of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine of the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Anter is an electrophysiologist, scientist, and innovator in the field of catheter ablation, specializing in catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Dr. Anter established a translational research laboratory that focuses on studying mechanisms of arrhythmias and translating this knowledge into innovations that improve patient care. This research laboratory has been pivotal in describing mechanisms of reentrant ventricular tachycardias, developing new mapping catheters and ablation technologies, that have since become standard of care.
