Biography

Dr. Neomi Shah was recruited at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (MMC/AECOM) after completing her fellowship in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep at Yale University School of Medicine. Her post-doctoral research identified sleep apnea as a risk factor for coronary artery disease related events. She seeks to elucidate the complex relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and coronary artery disease, especially in the setting of an acute myocardial infarction. Dr. Shah leads a cohort study of acute myocardial infarction patients at MMC. In addition, Dr. Shah is an active co-investigator of the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL), a landmark population-based study of health outcomes in the US Latino population led by her mentors Drs. Robert Kaplan (site PI) and Susan Redline (Chair, Sleep Reading Center). There is an extensive sleep component in HCHS/SOL, including both self-reported and objective sleep monitoring, making it one of the largest studies ever conducted on sleep disorders and vascular disease. Dr. Shah has been actively involved in data collection, analysis and manuscript production in this ambitious and complex study of 16,000 Hispanic individuals from across the US. In particular, she has spearheaded research in this cohort aimed to identify gender and ethnic differences in the presentation of sleep apnea and biomarkers of sleep apnea that are linked to cardiovascular disease risk. Dr. Shah is also involved in other large population based cohort studies including the Cardiovascular Health Study, the Women's Health Initiative Study and the Jackson Heart Study.
