FELLOWS

 

Dr. David Berg graduated from Stanford University and earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. Dr. Berg completed his internal medicine residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he served as the chief medical resident. He is currently a senior fellow in cardiovascular medicine and critical care medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a postdoctoral research fellow with the TIMI Study Group. Dr. Berg’s clinical interests include heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and critical care cardiology. His research is focused on using clinical characteristics, serum biomarkers, and genetic information to optimize treatment of patients with coronary artery disease, heart failure, and other cardiovascular diseases.

Dr. Remo H. M. Furtado received his MD from Universidade Federal do Ceara in Fortaleza, Brazil. Dr. Furtado completed his residency in internal medicine at Escola Paulista de Medicina and his cardiology fellowship at Instituto do Coracao (InCor) da Universidade de Sao Paulo. At InCor, he completed a fellowship in Acute Coronary Diseases. In 2015 he obtained his Doctor of Sciences degree, working on a thesis about drug interactions with clopidogrel. Since then, he has worked as investigator in several multicenter randomized clinical trials and also helped to found a group at his institution that studies antiplatelet drugs effects across a broad range of scenarios. Currently, he is a Research Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and TIMI Study Group. His research interests include antiplatelet drugs, acute coronary syndromes and the interplay between diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Baris Gencer obtained his medical degree from Lausanne University Hospital in Geneva, Switzerland and continued his residency and fellowship with postgraduate certifications in internal medicine, cardiology and clinical research. He co-authored more than 80 original scientific or review articles, as well as book chapters in the field of lipids, cardiovascular prevention, quality of care, biomarkers and management of acute coronary syndromes. In 2018, he joined Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the TIMI Study Group as a research fellow. His interests include clinical trials and precision medicine in cardiovascular medicine.

Dr. Nicholas Marston graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Austin and earned his medical degree from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Marston completed his internship, residency, and chief medical residency in internal medicine at the University of California San Diego. He is currently in his 3rd year of cardiovascular medicine fellowship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he is the chief cardiology fellow as well as a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group. His research interests include novel therapeutics in acute coronary syndrome and secondary prevention, genetics of cardiovascular disease, and the application of biomarkers and genetic variants to identify high-risk patients for targeted therapy.

Dr. Arman Qamar received his medical degree from the University of Delhi and completed residency in internal medicine at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He then completed a fellowship in cardiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and a fellowship in vascular medicine at BWH.  He is currently a American Heart Association SFRN for vascular research fellow at the TIMI Study Group and a MPH-Clinical Effectiveness student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Qamar’s clinical interest includes peripheral artery disease (PAD), endovascular interventions, aortic disease, venous thromboembolism, and coronary artery disease (CAD). His research is focused on using risk prediction tools, biomarkers, clinical phenotyping, novel medical and device based therapeutics to improve outcomes in patients with PAD and CAD.

Dr. Thomas Zelniker received his medical degree from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, and wrote his doctoral thesis at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Dr. Zelniker completed his internal medicine residency at the University Hospital of Heidelberg in 2015. He then spent two years as a cardiology fellow at the University Hospital of Heidelberg. He is currently a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group. His research interests include cardiovascular critical care, pulmonary hypertension, heart failure and biomarker research.
