Dr. Newton-Cheh is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a cardiologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He is a complex trait geneticist and cardiovascular epidemiologist. The Newton-Cheh laboratory is focused on the study of hypertension, sudden cardiac death and drug cardiotoxicity. We are leveraging the rapid growth of human genetics:
- to identify DNA sequence variants in genes 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
