Dr. Zareba is Principal Investigator or Co-PI on several NIH and corporate grants focused on risk stratification of cardiac death and on clinical usefulness and prognostic significance of ECG parameters. He also serves as Principal Investigator of the ECG Core Labs for numerous studies including the International LQTS Registry, the North American ARVD Registry, MADIT II, and MADIT-CRT, large clinical trials testing clinical effectiveness and safety of implantable cardiac defibrillators and resynchronization devices.

He participated in a number of corporate research projects focused on evaluating drug safety and participated in a number of advisory councils on the topic of cardiac safety in drug trials. Dr Zareba has authored or co-authored more that 350 publications in cardiology research with many of them focused on sudden death, risk stratification, QT prolongation, and ECG related cardiac safety biomarkers. Dr. Zareba is Past President of the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology. Dr. Zareba is the Editor in Chief of Cardiology Journal, and Deputy Editor of the Annals of Noninvasive Electrocardiology as well as a member of the editorial boards of a number of other leading cardiology-related journals.
