Shady Abohashem, MD, a cardiovascular researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital- and an Instructor at Harvard Medical School, with a current focus on studying the intersection of advanced imaging and cardiovascular medicine. I am interested in climate justice and mental health. I am an early career participant in the leadership development program of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology. Editorial board member of Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine and BMC Cardiovascular Disorders journal. My Research Interests are focused on studying a Neuro-Immuno-Arterial biological axis, via employing Advanced non-invasive multimodality molecular imaging approaches (i.e., PET/CT, MRI), to understand the underlying link between socio-environmental stressors and cardiovascular disease risk in different populations including those with RA and HIV. My current projects aim to investigate the interaction between genetic risk, environmental pathogens, lifestyle factors, imaging indices, and their contributions to aortic valve disease risk and other cardiovascular disorders.
