Maiko Matsui specializes in cardiology and neuroscience. Within these broader fields, she studies aortic valve disease and autism.

Previously, Dr. Matsui had studied abnormalities in craniofacial development for her doctoral research, and chromosome segregation in male Drosophila meiosis during her undergraduate studies.
