Dr. Sara Kalantari received her bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Chicago, and her medical degree from the Pritzker School of Medicine. She completed her Internal Medicine residency training at Brigham and Woman’s Hospital and then returned to the University of Chicago for a cardiology fellowship. She is currently completing her advanced heart failure fellowship.
Her interests focus on the management of advanced heart failure patients and invasive hemodynamics. One of her research projects focuses on investigating the invasive hemodynamic synergistic effects of beta-blockade in patients receiving milrinone drug. The results were presented at the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant in 2017. She is currently working on an industry funded research study that examines the effects of sacubitril/valsartan on physiological and functional parameters for heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction.
Following completion of her fellowship, Dr. Kalantari hopes continue her career as a faculty member in the Section of Cardiology.
