Dr. Mark W. Feinberg is a Cardiologist and vascular biologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Feinberg is Director, Program in Cardiovascular RNA Biology that investigates mechanisms leading to the development of a range of macrovascular (e.g. atherosclerosis and coronary and peripheral artery disease) and microvascular disease (e.g. diabetic wound healing). His group has elucidated the functional role of non-coding RNAs (microRNAs and lncRNAs) in endothelial cells and has translated these findings into novel therapeutic approaches for ischemic cardiovascular disease states. Dr. Feinberg has held various leadership roles in cardiovascular research including his service on national peer review study sections, editorial service, and as a Co-Chair of the Brigham Research Institute’s Cardiovascular, Diabetes, and Metabolic Disorders Center. Dr. Feinberg completed his Cardiovascular Medicine fellowship training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he subsequently joined the faculty.
