Michael Broman’s expertise is in treating patients who are experiencing heart rhythm disorders, with a specific focus on cardiac device implantations and ablations to regulate heartbeats for patients with arrhythmias. He also specializes in genetic testing and treatment of patients with inherited arrhythmia syndromes. His research is focused on the role of developmental transcriptional regulators and other genetic factors in the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation, a common abnormal heart rhythm affecting a large proportion of the general population. His laboratory utilizes animal models and human tissue studies to address questions regarding the roles of, primarily, the GATA4/FOG-2 axis in atrial fibrillation and cardiac failure.
Broman earned an MD and a PhD in pharmacology from the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed his residency and cardiology fellowship training at the University of Chicago. He most recently served as a Coggeshall Fellow in the University of Chicago Department of Medicine.
