Edward R. Marcantonio, MD MSc  is a Professor of Medicine at HMS and Section Chief for Research in the Division of General Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). Dr. Marcantonio is an internationally recognized clinical investigator focused on developing methods to deliver high value care to older adults in multiple settings to improve quality and outcomes, and reduce costs related to delirium and cognitive dysfunction. He currently leads four NIH-funded studies (3 R01’s, 1 P01 project) focused on improving diagnosis of delirium, and testing interventions to reduce delirium and cognitive decline in older adults. His research has been continuously funded for over 25 years by the NIH, AHRQ, and several foundations. He has received national recognition for his research, including the Paul Beeson Physician Scholarship, the American Geriatrics Society Outstanding Scientific Achievement in Clinical Investigation Award, and is an elected member of the Association of American Physicians. Over 70% of Dr. Marcantonio’s research portfolio is directly relevant to primary care. Dr. Marcantonio is also an active clinical general internist/geriatrician. 

 

In addition to leading several career development programs for junior researchers, Dr. Marcantonio has personally mentored over 60 students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members. Several of his former mentees now lead their own independent research programs, such as Dr. Schonberg. Dr. Marcantonio has received numerous mentoring awards including BIDMC’s Center for Faculty Development's Excellence in Mentoring Award, the HMS A. Clifford Barger Award for Excellence in Mentorship, and currently holds a Mid-Career Mentoring Award in Patient-Oriented Research (K24) from the National Institute on Aging.
