He directs the Cardiac Imaging Core Laboratory and the Clinical Trials Endpoints Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is a co-author of Essential Echocardiography.
Dr. Solomon received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. He performed fellowships at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School Training Program in Medical Genetics, and he is board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease.
Dr. Solomon’s research interests have focused on changes in ventricular structure and function following myocardial injury, modifiers of risk and influences of outcome in patients following myocardial infarction and with chronic heart failure, cardiovascular safety of non-cardiovascular therapies, factors that influence the transition from hypertension to heart failure, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. He has pioneered the use of cardiac imaging in cardiovascular drug and device development and use of imaging in clinical trials. He and his research group have played a leading role in many international clinical trials in heart failure, hypertension and myocardial infarction.
Dr. Solomon has directed the Harvard Medical School Cardiovascular Clerkship and the Echocardiography training program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He has authored more than 400 peer-reviewed articles, reviews and editorials, two textbooks of cardiac imaging, and the Echocardiograph/Imaging sections for the 10th edition of Braunwald’s Heart Disease. He is listed by Thomson-Reuters as one of the most highly cited scientists in the past 10 years.
