Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Knight is the Chester C. and Deborah M. Cooley Distinguished Professor of Cardiology at Northwestern University, and has been the Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute at Northwestern Memorial Hospital since November 1, 2009. He earned his BSPH at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and his MD at the Ohio State University. After completing his training in Medicine, Cardiology, and Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of Michigan, he joined the Michigan faculty in 1997. He later served as the Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of Chicago from 2002 to 2009.

As the Medical Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at Northwestern Medicine, Dr. Knight remains clinically active with a broad range of clinical and research interests in the field of Heart Rhythm Disorders. These interests range from catheter ablation for complex arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, to fundamental issues related to the basic mechanisms of various types of arrhythmias, and the use of imaging in the electrophysiology laboratory to guide ablation procedures and device implantation. He is involved in several multi-center clinical trials that are evaluating novel ablation tools and implantable devices, including the cryoballoon for pulmonary vein isolation, the totally subcutaneous implantable defibrillator, and left atrial appendage occlusion devices. He has coauthored over 300 scientific papers and is on the editorial board of several high-impact medical journals. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of Pacing and Cardiac Electrophysiology (PACE) and EPLab Digest.
