Dr. Amit Khera received his BS in Biology and Neurosciences from Duke University in 2005, graduating summa cum laude. He received his MD with Alpha Omega Alpha honors from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 2010. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School in 2013. He completed his clinical and research fellowship in cardiovascular medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School in 2016.
Dr. Khera is a physician-scientist with expertise in epidemiology, clinical medicine, and human genetics. Among his scientific contributions, he pioneered a new approach to quantify genetic risk for common diseases, developed biomarkers that provide new biologic insights, and analyzed large-scale gene sequencing data to highlight key pathways underlying risk for coronary artery disease. His research program uses genetic variation as a tool to uncover new biology and enable enhanced clinical care informed by inherited susceptibility.
In addition to his research efforts, Dr. Khera is a clinical cardiologist within the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center focusing on heart attack prevention, genomic medicine, and cardiac rehabilitation.

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, armed with an unprecedented amount of genetic data, are developing polygenic scores to more accurately predicting disease, including cardiovascular disease risk
Two recent studies expand practitioners’ tool kits during a consult by providing patients with two action steps to help manage risk of premature death from heart disease
Precision medicine can help answer whether or not current heart disease treatment paradigms optimally address genetic heterogeneity.
