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.

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 Faculty Development Programs for Early, Mid-Career, Under-Represented Ethnic and Racial, Women, and Clinical leaders. A committed mentor, she has won local and national awards for her mentoring of early career investigators. She also won the 2020 Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award.

An active volunteer for the American Heart Association since 1992, she has served 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, and the annual Heart and Stroke Statistical Update.

She received the 2015 Paul Dudley White Award, the 2016 AHA Gold Heart Award, the 2016 Population Research Prize, the 2019 Laennec Clinician/ Educator Lecturer, and the Genomics and Precision Medicine 2019 Distinguished Achievement Award.
