Assistant Provost for Faculty Development
Boston University Medical Campus

MD, Case Western Reserve University



Emelia J. Benjamin, MD, ScM, FACC, FAHA, received her undergraduate degree at Harvard, her MD at Case Western Reserve University, and her Master's in Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health. 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 600 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 grants [2R01HL092577 & 1R01HL128914]. Her grants examine the epidemiology, outcomes, and genetics of atrial fibrillation.

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 is Principal Investigator of the grant that recruited the second generation of the Framingham Study's ethnic/racial minority cohort, the Omni Study.

In addition to her research, she is Assistant Provost for Faculty Development for Boston University Medical Campus, and Vice Chair for Faculty Development and Diversity, BU Department of Medicine. She co-designed and co-leads early, mid-career, under-represented minority, and women’s faculty leadership programs. A committed mentor, she has won local and national awards for her mentoring of early career investigators.

An active volunteer for the American Heart Association since 1992, she serves on a variety of local and national Committees. She is Past-Chair of the American Heart Association’s Functional Genomics and Translational Biology Council and Study Section.
She received the 2015 Paul Dudley White Award, the 2016 AHA Gold Heart Award, and the 2016 Population Research Prize. She serves the AHA as Science Representative to the National Board of Directors and Chairs of the Science and Clinical Education Lifelong Learning Committee, and the annual Heart and Stroke Statistical Update.
