Dr. Noyan Gokce, MD is Professor of Medicine at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine and Director of Echocardiography at Boston Medical Center. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC), American Society of Echocardiography (FASE), and a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI). He is board certified in Cardiovascular Diseases and Adult Echocardiography. He is recipient of the “Excellence in Clinical Teaching” award in 2006, 2011, 2017, and 2019 in the Cardiovascular Division. He has been awarded the “Collaborator of the Year” award in Clinical/Translational Sciences at BMC, as well as First Prize in Clinical Research at the Evans Memorial Dept. of Medicine 100th Anniversary Celebration. Dr. Gokce’s translational research focuses on elucidating mechanisms of vascular dysfunction in obesity and metabolic diseases, using both basic and clinical approaches. His laboratory has been NIH funded for 20 consecutive years and he is currently the principal investigator on several NIH R01 grants that study the relationships between dysfunctional adipose tissue in human fat stores and cardiometabolic dysfunction. These studies also seek to characterize pathogenic links between obesity, perivascular adipose remodeling, insulin resistance, inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, and angiogenesis, and investigate how medical and bariatric surgical weight loss interventions regulate adipose tissue metabolism and micro- and macro-vascular phenotypes.
