Principal Investigator

Rajat Gupta, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School with a research laboratory in the Divisions of Cardiovascular Medicine and Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His research is focused on identifying new treatments for vascular disease using human genetics to discover novel biologic pathways. His post-doctoral work identified non-coding variants in the 6p24 locus as distal regulators of Endothelin-1 (Cell, 2017). Dr. Gupta’s laboratory recently identified the transcriptional signature of distinct endothelial cell populations using single cell RNA-sequencing (Circulation, 2019).

Dr. Gupta graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (2007) where he was awarded the Adolf J. Creskoff Prize. He completed Internal Medicine residency training at Massachusetts General Hospital (2010), cardiology fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (2014), and a post-doctoral fellowship in Human Genetics at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT (2016). Dr. Gupta has been named the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and received the Lerner Junior Faculty Award.  His research is funded by grants from the NIH (New Innovator Award), the Broad Institute, the Sperling Family Fellowship, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
