Highly Cited Researchers; World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds

I am a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. I also serve as Executive Director of Cardiometabolic Trials at the Baim Institute of Clinical Research. Over the past 27 years, I have been the principal investigator of more than 18 multicenter clinical trials including TACTICS-TIMI 18, PROVE IT-TIMI 22, IMPROVE IT and currently the RE-DUAL PCI trial.  My research has focused on management and prevention of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with a goal of trying to directly improve patient care. Collaborating with others, we have helped establish various antithrombotic and interventional strategies for ACS, as well as long-term lipid management approaches for prevention that are included in current international guidelines. More recently, I am also studying prevention approaches in diabetes and in atrial fibrillation. Finally, I help lead registries and quality improvement educational initiatives with an aim toward implementation of research advances in clinical practice.

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.
