Doctor of Medicine
Xin Tu, MD, is a cardiologist in the field of cardiovascular medicine. Of special interest to Dr. Tu are genomics, physiology and physiopathology, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmia, heart failure and preventive medicine. He has done many research in the discovery of multiple genes that increase susceptibility for cardiovascular disease and continues his research in this area.
