Barry J. Maron, MD is the Director of Clinical Research in the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center at Tufts Medical Center. Previously, Dr. Maron was the Director of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center program at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation for 23 years. Prior to that, he was Senior Investigator in the National Institutes of Health (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute) Cardiology Branch for 21 years.
Dr. Maron has authored 930 original peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and other contributions to the literature, as well as 325 abstracts and five books, including the well-regarded “Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: For Patients, Their Families and Interested Physicians.” His research initiatives have included diverse clinical and pathologic aspects of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy over a 40 year career, including development of risk stratification guidelines and introducing implantable defibrillators for effective prevention of sudden death in adults and children with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
