Lab Overview

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
