Cancer-Focused Research

Dr. Feinstein is a physician-scientist and clinical/translational researcher whose research focuses on immune mechanisms of cardiovascular disease. This includes research related to cancer immunotherapies and risk for cardiovascular disease manifestations including atherosclerosis, thrombosis, and myocardial inflammation/dysfunction. Additionally, Dr. Feinstein investigates implications of cardiovascular and other events on myelopoiesis and clonal expansion, with potential implications for malignancy. These projects generally involve deep tissue and molecular phenotyping as well as spatial transcriptomic analyses, with this reverse-translational approach generating insights from clinical specimens for mechanistic studies and therapeutic development.
