Eric D. Carruth, PhD

Research interests

Dr. Carruth is an assistant professor in the Department of Genomic Health at Geisinger. He has a background in biomedical engineering with a particular emphasis on imaging-based, multi-scale approaches to understanding cardiovascular disease. Dr. Carruth's research interests are focused on understanding the contributions of genetics with clinical and behavioral stressors in the development of cardiovascular disease and investigating markers of early disease in patients with genetic risk using advanced medical imaging.

PhD, Bioengineering, University of California San Diego, 2018 
BS, Biomedical Engineering, University of Utah, 2012
