Overview

Judah Z. Weinberger, MD, PhD is a cardiologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Weinberger is board certified in cardiology and interventional cardiology and specializes in adult clinical cardiology.

During the past two decades, Dr. Weinberger has led several major clinical trials on such topics as new approaches to restenosis after coronary angioplasty. He is the associate editor of the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Cardiovascular Radiation Medicine, and is on the editorial advisory board of Vascular Radiotherapy Monitor.

Dr. Weinberger holds 19 issued U.S. and international patents in the field of interventional cardiology. Dr. Weinberger received an M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School, an M.A. in physics from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in immunology from Harvard University. He was a clinical fellow in cardiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and a postdoctoral research fellow in molecular biology and genetics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Research

Using a combination of bioengineering and pharmacological approaches, we are studying methods to modify proliferative vascular responses after various vascular manipulations, such as angioplasty, stent implantation, or arteriovenous fistulae. For example, our lab pioneered the use of intravascular radiation therapy (brachytherapy) for the prevention and treatment of restenosis following angioplasty and stenting. Members of the lab have included basic science post-doctoral fellows, clinical cardiology and vascular surgery fellows, and bioengineers. Design, and optimization of novel devices, as well as improvement of existing cardiovascular devices are major interests of this lab.

Research Interests

  • Translation of scientific advances into therapeutic devices, drugs to treat cardiovascular disease
