Dr. Marc Simon is an Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of Heart Failure Research & Translational Pulmonary Hypertension Research, Medical Director of the Montefiore Clinical & Translational Research Center of the Clinical Translational Science Institute. He holds secondary appointments in Clinical and Translational Science in the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and in the Department of Bioengineering, both at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Simon graduated from The University of Pennsylvania with a BS degree in Bioengineering in 1994 and went on to receive his MD from the University of Maryland in 1998. From 1998-2001, he completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Affiliated Hospitals. He then moved to Pittsburgh where he completed Fellowships in Cardiology and Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation (2001-2006) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in the Heart and Vascular Institute. During this time, while supported on a NRSA Research Fellowship in the Departments of Bioengineering and Critical Care Medicine, Dr. Simon enrolled in an MS in Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh which he completed in 2007. He came on faculty at the University of Pittsburgh in 2006, supported via a K12/KL2 NIH Roadmap/NICHD University of Pittsburgh Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Scholars Program (Roadmap K12). He received formal training in Clinical Research also at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Simon’s current research interests include the study of right ventricular structural and functional adaptation to pressure overload in pulmonary hypertension and heart failure. Dr. Simon’s labs focus on 1) advanced analysis of clinical hemodynamics, 2) integration of imaging and hemodynamics to better assess right ventricular function, and 3) early phase clinical trials in pulmonary hypertension and heart failure.
