Professor Marek Malik is Professor of Cardiac Electrophysiology at St George's.
His research interests include acquired, mainly drug-induced long QT syndrome, advanced high precision electrocardiography, cardiac autonomic status, and cardiac risk stratification. In this field, he has authored 12 monographs and textbooks and more than 400 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
Professor Malik has also served on a number of academic task forces, including the co-chairmanships of the European Society of Cardiology/National Association for Sport and Physical Education task force on heart rate variability and of the independent academic task force on drug-induced Torsade de Pointes and implications for drug development.
Professor Malik joined St George's after starting his career at Charles University in Prague, where he held a chair in applied computer science while also being a consultant at the department of medicine of the university hospital. Prior to this, he graduated in both mathematics and computer science, and in medicine. He later specialised in cardiology, cardiac electrophysiology, and electrocardiography.
Professor Malik is the Chairman of St Paul's Cardiac Electrophysiology in London. He is a fellow of several scientific societies, including the American College of Cardiology, European Society of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society. He is also an honorary Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education Research Fellow of US Food and Drug Administration.
