Biography

Jeffrey Bender, MD, is a cardiologist and immunobiologist who cares for patients with a wide range of cardiovascular (CV) issues and disorders, ranging from CV prevention to angina, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. He is committed to vascular research, which will ultimately lead to better care for heart patients.

Dr. Bender says he chose cardiology partly because he wanted to be able to provide both acute and critical care, as well as long-term preventive care. He has found working with heart patients rewarding, especially when he is able to use the latest advances to help them.

In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Bender is the Robert I. Levy Professor of Preventive Cardiology and a professor of immunobiology at the Yale School of Medicine. He is also the senior vice chief for academic development in the cardiovascular medicine division. His own research interests are in women’s vascular health, inflammation, angiogenesis, vascular injury, and transplantation.
