Catherine Simpson, MD, MHS
Dr. Simpson is interested in clinical and translational research exploring dysregulated metabolism in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), with a focus on identifying novel biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets. During her clinical training, Dr. Simpson gained an appreciation for the unique challenges faced by patients with PAH, and this motivated her to explore research questions with potential to expand therapeutic options and tools available to aid in risk stratification and prognosis. In the future, she plans to continue her academic research focus in PAH, while continuing to provide care and advocacy for her patients with PAH at Johns Hopkins.
