She is a Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Boston University and is a clinical cardiologist at Boston Medical Center. She is author of over 650 peer-reviewed publications that focus on the on the genetics, epidemiology, and prognosis of a variety of cardiovascular conditions and markers including atrial fibrillation, vascular function, and systemic inflammation. She is multi-Principal Investigator on 2RO1 atrial fibrillation grants [2R01HL092577 & 1R01HL128914], and is the Center and Training Director on an American Heart Association Strategically Focused Research Network on Atrial Fibrillation. She also is MPI on 2 mobile Health grants (1R01HL141434 and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation).

Dr. Benjamin has conducted research at the Framingham Study since 1988. She is a Member of the Executive Committee, and is Co-Director of the Medical Endpoints Committee. She was Principal Investigator of the grant that recruited the second generation of the Framingham Study's ethnic/racial minority cohort, the Omni Study.
