Dr. Daniel Lancini is a cardiac electrophysiology fellow at the Heart Rhythm Service, QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
He is originally from Australia, where he initially undertook a Bachelor of Science majoring in biomedical science before subsequently graduating with his medical degree (2014) at the University of Queensland with first-class honours. He completed physician and advanced cardiology training, being awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2022.
In addition to his clinical work and training, Daniel is in the final stages of completing his PhD entitled Atrial Fibrillation in Critical Care through the University of Queensland. He is investigating the drivers and clinical impact of atrial fibrillation amongst unique hospitalized critical care cohorts in the intensive care unit, coronary care unit, and emergency department. The findings from this endeavour have been published in several international cardiology journals, including Europace and European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care.
While completing his electrophysiology fellowship in Halifax, Daniel has also been working on a research project with Dr. Ratika Parkash and colleagues investigating the association between QRS narrowing with cardiac resynchronization therapy and adverse cardiac outcomes (mortality and heart failure hospitalization) based on data from the Resynchronisation/Defibrillation in Ambulatory Heart Failure Trial (RAFT). Daniel presented the preliminary findings of this research project at Heart Rhythm 2023 in New Orleans, USA.
Daniel most enjoys being a chat member for the fantastic research and educational advantage it holds and the networking opportunities with like-minded clinicians and researchers in cardiac arrhythmia. In particular, he was granted a CHAT Travel Award, which was instrumental in facilitating his travel to Heart Rhythm 2023. Outside of his clinical training and work, Daniel enjoys hiking, travelling, cooking and playing the piano!
