Albert Kim, MD, PhD
|Institution||Boston University School of Medicine|
Dr. Kim is an accomplished physician-scientist with expertise in cardiovascular disease, translational medicine, and drug development. He earned his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering from Harvard, MD and PhD degrees from UCLA, completed internal medicine residency at Brigham and Women's Hospital, cardiology fellowship training at MGH, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology training at UCSF. He joined the UCSF faculty and subsequently transitioned to the pharmaceutical industry as a Senior Translational Medicine Expert at Novartis, where he led small molecule and biologic asset programs for hyperlipidemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, and arrhythmia indications. In 2013 he joined the Pfizer Cardiovascular and Metabolic (CVMET) Research Unit in Cambridge, MA and has served in multiple leadership roles over the past 4 years. He currently serves as VP, Clinical Research Head for CVMET, and oversees clinical research efforts for cardiometabolic diseases such as NASH, diabetes, obesity and heart failure. He has served in advisory and supervisory roles for cardiovascular safety and pharmacovigilance activities, and worked at the FDA in the Division of Cardiac Devices as a medical reviewer and project lead for the industry guidance document on catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. Beyond his roles at Pfizer, he also holds academic appointments in the VA Boston Cardiac Electrophysiology Section, at Boston University, and at Harvard Medical School.
