Dr. Mendelson leads a cardiac molecular epidemiology laboratory that takes an applied computational and bioinformatics approach to gain novel and clinically relevant insights into the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by studying the relation of epigenetic and molecular markers with cardiometabolic traits in high-dimensional datasets. The goals of the lab program are to evaluate the utility of epigenetic and molecular biomarkers to enhance our ability: a) to identify individuals at-risk for CVD early in life before the onset of clinical disease, b) to direct prevention interventions, c) to direct treatment to reduce CVD, d) to determine response to treatment , e) to identify individuals with subclinical and clinical CVD, and f) to collaborate on efforts to develop therapeutics based on epigenetic dysregulation causal for CVD.


Michael Mendelson, MD ScM, is a pediatric cardiologist in the Preventive Cardiology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital and Instructor (Pediatrics) at Harvard Medical School. He completed his Pediatrics residency at Montreal Children’s Hospital, McGill University and Cardiology Fellowship at SickKids Hospital, University of Toronto. He completed a senior fellowship in Preventive Cardiology at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. This was followed by a research fellowship with the Framingham Heart Study, Boston University in cardiovascular epidemiology and a subsequent research fellowship with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the U.S. National Institutes of Health intramural research program in molecular epidemiology. He is currently funded by the NHLBI to study epigenetic contributors to cardiometabolic disease.
