Biography

Dr. Nayor is a clinical-translational investigator and heart failure cardiologist. He received training in Internal Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Osler Medical Residency training program and Cardiology and Heart Failure and Transplantation training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His research background includes basic science investigations, physiologic studies, and cardiovascular epidemiology focusing on the intersection of metabolic health and cardiovascular disease. His group and collaborators have studied: 1) the effect of exercise on metabolism via assaying >500 circulating metabolites; 2) physiologic determinants of fitness; 3) novel protein biomarkers of heart failure risk through broad proteomic profiling; 4) and lifestyle contributors to cardiometabolic disease and heart failure, among other topics.

Dr. Nayor has worked closely with the Framingham Heart Study for the last 8 years and currently leads community-based studies evaluating metabolic responses to discrete physiologic perturbations, such as exercise and a dietary intervention.
