Speaker Bio

This year’s lecturer, Glenn I. Fishman, MD, FACC, FAHA, FACP, FHRS, received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Cornell University College of Arts & Sciences and his M.D. from Stanford University School of Medicine. He subsequently completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, followed by a fellowship in clinical Cardiology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and a research fellowship in Molecular Cardiology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Dr. Fishman joined the faculty at Einstein and rose to the rank of Associate Professor of Medicine and Molecular Genetics, and Director of their Molecular Cardiology Program. He was then recruited to Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he was named the Fishberg Professor of Medicine and Director of the Section of Myocardial Biology. In 2001, Dr. Fishman joined the faculty of the NYU School of Medicine where he serves as Director of the Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology, Chief of Cardiology at NYU-Langone Medical Center and the William Goldring Professor of Medicine, Professor of Neuroscience and Physiology and Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology.

In 2013 Dr. Fishman was also appointed Vice Chair for Research for the Department of Medicine. Dr. Fishman is internationally known for his research on the molecular pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. He is especially interested in understanding the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias and developing novel strategies for their treatment. Dr. Fishman has served on the Editorial Boards of a number of major biomedical journals including Circulation, Circulation Research, FASEB Journal, Heart Rhythm, Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, and is currently Associate Editor of Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology. Dr. Fishman is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Physician-Scientist Award from the National Institutes of Health, the Louis Katz Basic Science Award for Young Investigators and Established Investigator Awards from the American Heart Association, and the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund Clinical Scientist Award in Translational Research.

In 2015 Dr. Fishman received the American Heart Association Basic Research Prize and in 2018 he was recognized as the Gordon K. Moe Lecturer by the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society. Dr. Fishman has been inducted into the American Society of Clinical Investigation, the Harvey Society, the Association of University Cardiologists and the Association of American Physicians. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and the Heart Rhythm Society. He has served as Chairman of the Research Committee and as a member of the Board of Trustees of the American Heart Association Founders Affiliate, on the Board of Trustees of the Heart Rhythm Society, and as President of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society.
