Thomas MichelWho am I?


I am specialist in cardiovascular medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). In addition, I am a professor of medicine (Biochemistry) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and associate director of the Harvard/Massachusetts Institute of Technology MD-PhD Program.

After graduating from Harvard College, I received my MD and PhD degrees from Duke University School of Medicine. I completed an internal medicine residency, a clinical cardiology fellowship and a genetics research fellowship at BWH. I am board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.

My clinical interests include general cardiology and ischemic heart disease. I authored of over 160 peer-reviewed publications, our research uses biochemical and cell biological approaches to understand signal transduction pathways in the cardiovascular system. My laboratory has studied endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), a signaling enzyme involved in the control of vascular tone, myocardial contractibility and platelet aggregation. An active educator, I served as the dean for education at Harvard Medical School. For the past two decades, the National Institutes of Health has provided continuous funding for my research endeavors.
