Mandeep R. Mehra, MBBS, MSc, FRCP, is the first incumbent of the William Harvey Distinguished Chair in Advanced Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He served as the founding Medical Director of the Heart and Vascular Center and is the Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Heart Disease at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Additionally, he is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, the number-one ranked journal in its field. Dr. Mehra is a Past President (2008) of the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) and Immediate Past President of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA).

He has authored and published more than 500 scholarly papers with a specific focus on advanced heart failure related to discovery of the obesity paradox, describing the natural history of cardiac allograft vasculopathy, establishing pivotal international guidelines for the care of transplant patients, and defining the role of new immunosuppression as well as genomic-based biomarkers for evaluating cardiac allograft rejection. In recent years, his research focus has shifted to evaluation of novel left ventricular assist devices engineered to reduce the burden of adverse effects and allow use in broader populations of patients. This work, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, has resulted in the introduction of novel therapy for advanced heart failure patients.

Dr. Mehra has a certificate in executive leadership from the Harvard Business School and also completed a master’s degree in health economics and management at the London School of Economics in 2018, a degree earned through his designation as a Braunwald Scholar.

This is a CME Accredited Program.
