GeneHealth UK appoints Clinical Advisor - Cardio

GeneHealth UK (part of the Check4Cancer Ltd group of companies) is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Antonis Pantazis as Clinical Advisor - Cardio.

Dr Antonis Pantazis is a Consultant Cardiologist and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at University College London.

He joined the Inherited Cardiovascular Disease Unit at The Heart Hospital in 2004, immediately after completing his training in Cardiology. Dr Pantazis had an early interest in Cardiomyopathies and worked in this field during his training.

As a Consultant Cardiologist, Dr Pantazis has special interest in the arrhythmogenic phenotype of cardiomyopathies, such as ARVC, as well as their genotype-phenotype correlations.

He also has an additional interest in advanced non-invasive Cardiac Imaging and management of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

Beyond his clinical commitments, Dr Pantazis is active in research and training of medical students and young doctors.  He is a member of the Myocardial and Pericardial Disease Working Group of the European Society of Cardiology.

Professor Gordon Wishart, medical director of Check4Cancer, says, “I am delighted that Dr Pantazis has joined GeneHealth UK and, as Clinical Advisor, he has been pivotal in the development and expansion of our genetic testing and counselling for Inherited Cardiac Conditions (ICCs). Until recently, GeneHealth UK has mainly focused on genetic testing for common cancers but the appointment of Dr Pantazis has allowed expansion of our genetic services to include cardiovascular disease as well.”
