Robert Lux is Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. Dr. Lux graduated from Yale College in 1966 with a B.S. in electrical engineering and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering with specialization in statistical communication theory from the University of Vermont at Burlington in 1969 and 1974, respectively.

Dr. Lux has published over 150 scientific articles, book chapters and editorials and made over 60 presentations at national and international scientific meetings in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. His specialties include the application of engineering and mathematical techniques to electrocardiology and to the development and evaluation of methods to assess cardiac electricity as it relates to cardiac arrhythmias and the identification of patients at risk of sudden cardiac death.

His career spanned 35 years at the Nora Eccles Harrison Cardiovascular Research and Training Institute at the University of Utah, where he served as its Director from 1994 – 1998.  He taught for fifteen years and mentored four masters and five doctoral students.  He regularly serves as a reviewer for twelve medical and engineering journals and serves on the editorial boards of three.  He is currently serving a four-year term on the Bioengineering, Technology and Surgical Sciences Study Section of the National Institutes of Health. Recently, he founded Tollgate Technologies LLC, a private consulting firm that provides consulting services and technical assessment of medical systems and devices, as well as programming services and algorithm development that relate to systems used in clinical and research aspects of cardiac electrophysiology.

Dr. Lux has a long-term and continuing interest in the integration of often disparate scientific disciplines and technologies for the purpose of solving today’s complex medical mysteries.
