Meet Your Presenter:

Dr. Heather Duffy, is an award winning speaker with 15 years of public speaking in science who has been asked to speak on presentation skills at a variety of levels. She is responsible for giving feedback on the Works in Progress in her department for all junior people. In addition, she has trained post-docs, students and technicians to give talks at national meetings, some of which have won awards for their presentations as well. She spends approximately 70% of her time on research with the rest of her time spent on teaching and development of teaching methods.

Dr. Duffy obtained her PhD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Neuroscience (AECOM). Her thesis was on the regulation of junctional complexes. Following a one year Postdoctoral fellowship at AECOM she moved to Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Here her work on the role of gap junctions in formation of syncytial tissues led to studies in cardiology. She moved to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, where she is presently an Assistant Professor of Medicine. Her work here focuses on the role of gap junctions in the formation of the arrhythmogenic substrate of Sudden Cardiac Death.
