Murthy’s main research focus is in improved understanding and risk stratification for cardiometabolic diseases, which represent a cascade starting from obesity and adiposity and ending in atherosclerosis and heart failure. The two primary methods used are (1) quantitative imaging methods (positron emission tomography [PET], computed tomography [CT], and magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) and (2) high throughput profiling of metabolites and other circulating biomarkers. These data are combined with a variety of quantitative, analytic approaches both to identify potential mechanisms and to assess potential for clinical risk assessment.
