Medical Education: Universita Di Bari, Facolta Di Medicina Residency: University of Bari Academic Title: Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) Section Head of Electrophysiology; Director of Arrhythmia Services Clinical Focus Improving patient care is the heart of Dr. Di Biase's mission. He believes this is possible through dedicated clinical practice associated to cutting-edge clinical research. Research Focus Dr. Di Biase's research focuses on cardiology and electrophysiology with specific emphasis on catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias performed either manually or with robotic catheter navigation. Additionally, his research focuses on heart failure, particularly cases treated with cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. Publications Dr. Di Biase is the author of about 300 publications in indexed journals, about 300 abstracts, and 14 electrophysiology book chapters. He serves as reviewer of major electrophysiology and cardiology journals, and as an editorial board member of Heart Rhythm Journal, Heart Rhythm Journal Case Report, and Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine. He is Assistant Editor for Journal Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology (JICE) and Associate Guest Section Editor for Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology (PACE).

Dr. Di Biase attended University of Bari in Bari, Italy, graduating from its medical school in 2000 and Cardiology residency program in 2004. In 2006, he completed a second-level master’s degree in Electrophysiology and Pacing at the University of Insubria, in Varese, Italy. In 2007, Dr. Di Biase received a grant from the Italian National Society of Cardiology to pursue a research fellowship at the Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Di Biase completed the PhD program in cardiovascular physiopathology at the University of Foggia, Italy, in 2010. Dr. Di Biase's research focuses on cardiology and electrophysiology, with an emphasis on catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias performed either manually or with robotic catheter navigation. His research focuses on heart failure, particularly in cases treated with cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. Dr. Di Biase is the author of more than 450 publications in indexed journals, roughly 500 abstracts, and 16 electrophysiology book chapters. He has presented as an invited speaker at numerous national and international conferences and serves as Associate Editor for Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology (PACE) as well as the Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology (JICE). He is the Editorial Team Lead for the American College of Cardiology in the field of Electrophysiology. He co-authored the 2017 HRS/EHRA/ECAS/APHRS/SOLAECE expert consensus statement on catheter and surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation, which is globally referenced for best-practices in cardiac ablation. Dr. Di Biase is the highest published Electrophysiology faculty member and is also one of the world’s most published physicians on the topic of cardiac electrophysiology and atrial fibrillation. Dr. Di Biase is a member of the Italian Federation of Cardiology and Electrophysiology (FIC- AIAC), the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the American Heart Association (AHA). He is a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society (FHRS) and the American College of Cardiology (FACC), and is an honorary member of the Korean Society of Cardiology.
