Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine

Pediatric Cardiologist, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta



Dr. Iannucci is a Georgia native who attended Georgia Tech for his undergraduate degree, followed by medical school at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. He then completed a pediatric residency and a cardiology fellowship at Emory University, where he stayed on as a faculty member. During his cardiology training, Dr. Iannucci developed an interest in the care of patients with aortic disease, and now works with Denver Sallee, MD, in the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Cardiology Aorta and Vascular Disease Clinic. In addition, Dr. Iannucci serves as the principal investigator of a study in conjunction with Emory University and Georgia Tech that is seeking to characterize the mechanical properties of aortic tissue to help predict progressive weakening of the aortic wall and risk of aortic dissection. He has four children and a minivan.


Dr. Iannucci's current focus is involved in multiple national patient registries with the aim of characterizing aortic disease in children to help identify which patients/conditions are at the highest risk and optimize medical therapy to slow the rate of disease progression.

As the largest pediatric aortic program in the Southeast United States caring for a diverse patient population, we are uniquely positioned to be able to expand the literature regarding potential racial and ethnic differences to potentially help to explain some of the phenotypic variability observed in patients harboring the same genetic variant.
