Jonathan L. Halperin, M.D., is an American cardiologist and the author of Bypass (ISBN 0-89586-509-2), among the most comprehensive works on the subject of coronary artery bypass surgery. In addition, he is the Robert and Harriet Heilbrunn Professor of Medicine at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine as well as Director of Clinical Cardiology in the Zena and Michael A. Wierner Cardiovascular Institute at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, both in New York City. Halperin was the principal cardiologist responsible for both the design and execution of the multi-center Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation (SPAF) clinical trials, funded by the National Institutes of Health, which helped develop antithrombotic strategies to prevent stroke, and he subsequently directed the SPORTIF clinical trials, which evaluated the first oral direct thrombin inhibitor for prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Halperin is the author of 3 books, 80 original peer reviewed reports, 38 chapters, 24 guidelines and position statements, 51 invited articles and 58 abstracts. He is listed among New York Magazine’s Best Doctors of 2009.
Halperin was born in 1949 in Boston, Massachusetts. He earned his A.B. from Columbia University in 1971 and his M.D. from Boston University in 1975. He completed an internship in medicine (in 1976) and a residency in internal medicine (in 1977), both at University Hospital, Boston. He was a clinical and research fellow in peripheral vascular disease at the Evans Memorial Foundation for Clinical Research in Boston (1977–1978) and a fellow in cardiology at Boston City Hospital (1978–1980). He served academic appointments at Boston City Hospital, St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton, Massachusetts, Boston University School of Medicine and the American Heart Association. In 1980, Halperin was appointed to The Mount Sinai School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor of Medicine. In 1993, he was named the Robert and Harriet Heilbrunn Professor of Medicine.
Halperin is a fellow the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, and the Councils on Circulation, Stroke and Cardiology of the American Heart Association. He is past president of the Society for Vascular Medicine.
Current federal appointments include the U.S Food and Drug Administration’s Cardiovascular and Renal Advisory Committee, and the Data Safety Monitoring Board for the Clinical Trial of Aspirin and Simvastatin in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension for the National Institutes of Health.
