As a recent recipient of the Ruth and James Clark Fund for Cardiac Research Innovation Award from the Penzance Foundation, Dr. Hanna K. Gaggin is interested in exploring the link between cardiac biomarkers and clinical presentation and management. Though she is involved in various biomarker research in general cardiology, her focus has been in novel heart failure biomarkers as well as BNP degradation and processing. To this purpose, she has completed an MPH in Quantitative Methods at the Harvard School of Public Health. She started her medical training at the Eastern Virginia Medical School, followed by residency at the University of Virginia and fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where she was actively involved in fellow education as an Associate Chief Fellow for Education and the Founder of the Board Review Conference. Together with Dr. James Januzzi, she is the Editor of the Mass General Cardiology Board Review Book coming out in 2013. Clinically, she is an enthusiastic general cardiologist building her practice.
