Dr. Michael Honigberg is a general/preventive cardiologist and investigator at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Honigberg’s laboratory focuses on advancing mechanistic understanding and clinical actionability of sex-specific cardiovascular disease risk factors in women and other emerging cardiovascular risk factors toward precision cardiovascular disease prevention. The lab leverages a broad range of methodologies and collaborations to achieve these goals, spanning human genetics, multi-omic biomarkers, imaging, and social and implementation science. Ongoing efforts in the lab, among others, include (1) comprehensively investigating causes and cardiometabolic consequences of adverse pregnancy outcomes; (2) defining how genetic and reproductive aging intersect to influence cardiovascular disease risk in women; and (3) enabling precision cardiovascular care for individuals with clonal hematopoesis of indeterminate potential, an age-related acquired blood condition that predisposes to cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Honigberg received his AB in Public Policy from Princeton University (2008), MD from Harvard Medical School (2014), and MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School (2014). He completed internship and residency in internal medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (2017) and cardiovascular disease fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital (2020). He is the recipient of the Jeremiah Stamler Award from the Northwestern Cardiovascular Young Investigators’ Forum (2020) and the Douglas P. Zipes Distinguished Young Scientist Award from the American College of Cardiology (2023).
