PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Benjamin Raby serves as the Director of the BWH Pulmonary Genetics Center, where he and his clinical team evaluate and care for patients with genetic forms of lung disease and provide counseling and diagnostic services to their at-risk relatives. He is an executive member of the BWH Center for Clinical Investigation and is Course Director of the Translational Genetics and Omics course of the Harvard Clinical and Translational Research Academy. In addition to seeing patients in the Pulmonary Genetics Center, Dr. Raby also attends on the inpatient Pulmonary Consult Service in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at BWH.

In 2012, Dr. Raby established the BWH Pulmonary Genetics Center - a first-of-its kind unit, which serves patients with suspected genetic pulmonary disorders by providing specialized diagnostic and genetic counseling services and coordinates translational research initiatives to evaluate the role of genetic information in clinical practice. These include the Pulmonary Precision Medicine Initiative, which studies the utility of genetic testing in two clinical contexts (the evaluation of lung transplant candidates and in the evaluation of patients with idiopathic bronchiectasis), and another study evaluating the merits of screening at-risk relatives of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. His work has been described in more than 170 published articles. In 2015 he was elected to the American Society of Clinical Investigation, and he is a standing member of the NIH NHLBI Mentored Clinical and Basic Science Review Committee. Dr. Raby also serves as Genetics Section Editor for UpToDate, where he oversees the development of genetics and genomics content across sub-specialties.
