Jonathan R. Lindner, MD
Oregon Health & Sciences University Portland, OR
Dr. Lindner is currently a Professor of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University where he holds the M. Lowell Edwards Professorship of Cardiology and serves as the Chief of the Division of Cardiometabolic Research at the Oregon National Primate Research Center. Dr. Lindner has expertise in the fields of cardiovascular imaging and microvascular physiology; and is currently the principal investigator on several R01 grants from the National Institutes of Health. His research laboratory has pioneered the use of contrast ultrasound for non-invasive molecular imaging of disease and the evaluation of microvascular function/dysfunction. Specific areas of research include: (a) application of molecular imaging techniques for early detection of atherosclerosis and evaluation of new therapies for atherosclerosis; (b) molecular imaging of angiogenesis and stem cell therapy; (c) molecular imaging for early diagnosis of myocardial ischemic injury and inflammation; (d) microvascular dysfunction and endothelial abnormalities in atherosclerosis, insulin resistance, and sickle cell disease; (e) development of new methods for detecting and treating peripheral arterial disease, and (f) novel approaches for therapeutic ultrasound. Dr. Lindner is the President Elect for the American Society of Echocardiography; and is the Vice-chair for the Exam Writing Committee for the National Board of Echocardiography.
