Laura Fredenburgh is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Physician in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Brigham. Laura completed her Internal Medicine residency training at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and her fellowship in the Harvard Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program. She is an attending physician in the Brigham Medical Intensive Care Unit and is an NIH and AHA-funded physician-scientist investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive pulmonary hypertension. Laura’s laboratory uses molecular approaches and mechano-biological methods to understand how alterations in the mechanical environment regulate vascular cellular behaviors, cell signaling, and transcriptomic changes to promote pulmonary vascular remodeling in pulmonary hypertension. Laura’s work spans basic mechanistic research to translational studies to interventional clinical trials. Laura is passionate about mentoring and is deeply committed to promoting the career and professional development of research fellows and junior faculty. She is thrilled to be joining the Office for Research Careers as Faculty Director.
