David S. Krantz, PhD
Professor, Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology Uniformed Services University Senior Scientist, Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress David S. Krantz, PhD is Professor and former Chair in the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology at USU. Over his career, he has conducted extensive research and teaching on the impact of psychosocial stress on physical health, and on the role of psychological factors in cardiovascular disorders - a field on the interface of psychology and cardiology. One focus of his work has been the effects of acute stress as a precipitating factor for coronary heart disease events such as myocardial ischemia and malignant arrhythmias. He is Principal Investigator of the BETRHEART Study, which investigates the role of stress and behavior in the progression of heart failure, and is also part of a collaborative team examining psychosocial influences on coronary heart disease in women (the NHLBI WISE study). Dr. Krantz is also Principal Investigator of the Center for Deployment Psychology, a major national post-graduate educational program of the Department of Defense to train mental health providers to treat deployment-related behavioral health issues in military service members and their families. Dr. Krantz has served as a past president of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research and the Division of Health Psychology of the American Psychological Association.

David S. Krantz, PhD is Professor and former Chair in the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology at Uniformed Services University (USU), and a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS). He received his B.S. from the CCNY and PhD in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Krantz has authored more than 180 scientific and professional publications on the effects of psychosocial stress on physical health, with a particular emphasis on psychosocial and biobehavioral factors in cardiovascular disorders. Dr. Krantz was the recipient of the American Psychological Association's (APA) Early Career Scientific Award in 1982, and Annual Awards from the APA Division of Health Psychology in 1981 and 2000. He is a former Editor-in-Chief of the journal Health Psychology, Past-President of the APA Division of Health Psychology, and a Past President of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research. For more than 20 years, the primary focus of Dr. Krantz's work has been on the effects of acute stress as a trigger of clinical coronary heart disease events such as myocardial ischemia and malignant arrhythmias. In this research, he has collaborated with a multi-disciplinary team of cardiologists and psychologists to examine the prevalence, mechanisms, and prognostic significance of mental stress-induced ischemia. This work was later extended to investigating the effects of mental stress on markers of vulnerability to malignant arrhythmias. Currently, he is Principal Investigator of the BETRHEART Study, which investigates the role of biobehavioral factors in the progression of heart failure, and is also a part of a team examining psychosocial influences on coronary heart disease in women (the NHLBI WISE study).

Stress can also act as a trigger for heart attack or stroke in people with undiagnosed heart disease, according to David S. Krantz, PhD, chairman of the department of medical and clinical psychology at Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Md.
He says stress can set off dangerous plaque ruptures in people who may not know that they're in the early stages of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, and those ruptures can lead to potentially life-threatening events like heart attacks or strokes.
