He has served on the executive steering committees of numerous international multicenter heart failure trials including most recently RELAX-AHF2, RELAX-AHF Asia, COMMANDER-HF (co-chair) and DREAM-HF (co-chair). In addition, Dr. Greenberg directs a basic science laboratory that studies the molecular basis of cardiac remodeling, myocardial fibrosis and the development of novel therapies. He has published extensively in medical journals throughout his career. Dr. Greenberg is co-editor of Congestive Heart Failure: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Comprehensive Approach to Management, the first comprehensive text in this field, now in its 3rd edition and is editor of Myocardial Remodeling: Mechanisms and Treatment, published in 2006 and Management of Heart Failure published in 2010. He served as Associate Editor for the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) from 2002-2014 and is a member of the editorial boards of several cardiology and subspecialty journals including JACC: Heart Failure and the European Journal of Heart Failure.
