Rajat Gupta, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School with a research laboratory in the Divisions of Cardiovascular Medicine and Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His research is focused on identifying new treatments for vascular disease using human genetics to discover novel biologic pathways. His post-doctoral work identified non-coding variants in the 6p24 locus as distal regulators of Endothelin-1 (Cell, 2017). Dr. Gupta’s laboratory recently identified the transcriptional signature of distinct endothelial cell populations using single cell RNA-sequencing (Circulation, 2019).

Dr. Gupta graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (2007) where he was awarded the Adolf J. Creskoff Prize. He completed Internal Medicine residency training at Massachusetts General Hospital (2010), cardiology fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (2014), and a post-doctoral fellowship in Human Genetics at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT (2016). Dr. Gupta has been named the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and received the Lerner Junior Faculty Award. His research is funded by grants from the NIH (New Innovator Award), the Broad Institute, the Sperling Family Fellowship, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
