Dr. Kazuma Oyama received his medical degree from Tohoku University, Japan, and completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in cardiology at Shonan Kamakura General Hospital. He then received his Ph.D. degree from Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine. He wrote a Ph.D. thesis regarding perivascular adipose tissue inflammation in patients with coronary artery disease through a translational imaging research. He then engaged in critical care medicine as an assistant professor at Tohoku University Hospital. He is currently a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group and an MPH student at the Harvard School of Public Health. His clinical interests include novel therapeutics in acute coronary syndrome and secondary prevention, genetics for precision medicine and biomarker research.
Dr. Antonio Fagundes, Jr. earned his medical degree from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, where he completed a residency in internal medicine. In Sao Paulo, he continued his residency training in cardiology and critical care medicine. He then received his Ph.D. degree from Sao Paulo University (USP). He wrote a Ph.D. thesis studying intra-aortic balloon pump in cardiogenic shock. He then engaged in critical care medicine as an ICU coordinator in Brasilia. He is currently a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group. His clinical interests and research are focused on novel therapeutics in acute coronary syndromes and heart failure, cardiogenic shock, critical care cardiology and biomarker research.
Dr. Mathew Lopes graduated with honors in cellular biology from New York University Grossman School of Medicine and completed internal medicine training at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He is currently a cardiology and critical care fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he also served as chief cardiology fellow during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is currently a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group and will be completing an MPH at the Harvard School of Public health. His clinical and research interests are centered around cardiogenic shock and the utilization and safe deployment of mechanical circulatory support devices.
Sid Patel, MD, graduated summa cum laude in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas and earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He then completed his internal medicine residency at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he is currently a senior fellow in cardiovascular medicine and critical care as well as a research fellow with the TIMI Study Group. Dr. Patel’s clinical interests include heart failure, cardiogenic shock and critical care cardiology. His research is focused on the application of biomarkers and genetics to identify high-risk patients and better inform clinical decision making.
Filipe Moura, MD, PhD, earned his medical degree from the University of Brasilia, Brazil. He then received his PhD degree from the State University of Campinas, where he worked on translational research that focused on insulin sensitivity in patients with acute myocardial infarction. He then completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He is currently a senior cardiology fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a research fellow at the TIMI Study Group. He is interested in clinical trials involving cardiometabolic health, and his research is focused on using both clinical data and genetics to characterize sub-phenotypes of obesity and their relevance to atherothrombotic and heart failure risk profiling.
