Matthew Steinhauser, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine
Division of Cardiology
Our lab is interested in molecular mechanisms of aging-related cardiometabolic diseases.
What question I’d like to answer
Matthew completed his undergraduate and medical degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He trained in Internal Medicine and was a Chief Resident at Columbia University Medical Center. He moved to Boston in 2006, where he completed a Cardiovascular Clinical Fellowship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, followed by postdoctoral research training in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Lee. Matthew started his laboratory in the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Division of Genetics in 2013. In 2019, he relocated the laboratory to the recently founded Aging Institute at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. As part of his role in the Aging Institute, Matthew directs the newly founded Center for Human Integrative Physiology. He also sees patients with cardiovascular and metabolic diseases at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.
