Biographical Info

Dr. Edwin Homan is an Instructor in Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He practices cardiovascular medicine with a focus on cardiac critical care, consultative cardiology, and echocardiography.

Dr. Homan conducts basic/translational laboratory research at the Center for Metabolic Health in the Cardiovascular Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medicine. His ongoing research projects focus on the molecular mechanisms underpinning obesity and cardiovascular disease. Using a mouse model of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), he is examining dysregulation of adipose tissue-derived hormones (“adipokines”) along with profibrotic inflammatory response by the innate immune system. He is also studying the effects of modulating the innate immune system in an obese/diabetic mouse model of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. He hopes to leverage the results of these studies into new potential therapies for cardiometabolic disease prevention and treatment.

Dr. Homan earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard University and received his M.D. degree with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He completed his Internal Medicine residency at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and his fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease at NYPH-Cornell. He served as Chief Cardiology Fellow and undertook an additional year of laboratory training funded by the division’s NIH T32 training grant.
