Posts by Christopher Holmes Newton-Cheh, MD, MPH


Dr. Newton-Cheh is a cardiologist in the Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant section and the Cardiovascular Genetics Program of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cardiology Division and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He sees patients with advanced heart failure and patients undergoing genetic evaluation of potentially familial cardiomyopathies.

Dr. Newton-Cheh is a faculty member of the Center for Genomic Medicine and the Cardiovascular Research Center.  He is a complex trait geneticist and cardiovascular epidemiologist. The Newton-Cheh laboratory is focused on the study of hypertension, arrhythmias and heart failure. They are leveraging the growth of human genetics to identify DNA sequence variants that contribute to these common diseases, to translate these genetic findings to an improved understanding of human physiology through patient-oriented research and to define the role of genetic variants, alongside other clinical risk factors, in risk prediction at the population level.
