Alexander J. Blood, MD, MSc, FACC

After finishing undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University, Alexander J. “AJ” Blood was awarded a research fellowship at the National Institute of Health prior to joining the inaugural class at the Hofstra-Northwell School of Medicine. As an internal medicine resident at Duke University Hospital, AJ was awarded a patent in remote medical data management and triage. As a cardiologist, critical care, and research fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, AJ developed research protocols, published, and presented nationally in remote healthcare delivery. From investigating heart failure with reduced ejection fraction to the root causes of cardiometabolic disease, AJ developed, conducted, and published high-impact research. These efforts culminated in the presentation of a late breaking clinical trial to an international audience at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in November, 2021.

His research ambitions include overcoming barriers to the implementation of guideline-recommended care and establishing systems to identify, address, and continue to monitor patients regarding dietary, lifestyle, medical, and procedural therapy. As a primary investigator at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, he has been awarded multiple investigator-initiated, industry-funded grant opportunities in obesity, heart failure, and diabetes. He serves in leadership roles in the Accelerator of Clinical Transformation group at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and as the Director of Clinical Operations and Innovation at Mass General Brigham Remote Health. Clinically, AJ is the director of the cardiovascular critical care unit at Newton Wellesley Hospital where he supervises and teaches Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Housestaff in the direct care of patients. In his role as an attending physician in the cardiac surgical intensive care unit at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, he supervises fellows in critical care, anesthesia, and surgery.
