Edit Profile

Biography

Dr. Newton-Cheh is a cardiologist in the Heart Failure and Transplantation section of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cardiology Division and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He sees patients with advanced heart failure.

Dr. Newton-Cheh is a faculty member of the Center for Human Genetic Research and the Cardiovascular Research Center, where he co-directs the Human Cardiovascular Genetics Program.  He is a complex trait geneticist and cardiovascular epidemiologist. The Newton-Cheh laboratory is focused on the study of hypertension, arrhythmias and heart failure. We are leveraging the growth of human genetics to identify DNA sequence variants that contribute to these common diseases, to translate these genetic findings to an improved understanding of human physiology through patient-oriented research and to define the role of genetic variants, alongside other clinical risk factors, in risk prediction at the population level.
