Marc P. Bonaca MD, MPH, FAHA, FACC

Chair, ACC Vascular Disease Section Leadership Council

Title/Institution: Executive Director of CPC Clinical Research and CPC Community Health

Director of Vascular Research and an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the inaugural holder of the William R. Hiatt Endowed Chair in Cardiovascular Research.

Email: marc.bonaca@cpcmed.org

Clinical/Research Interests: Research focus incudes ischemic risk in patients with atherosclerotic vascular disease, risk prediction, and risk modification through the use of pharmacologic and biologic therapies.

Key areas of interest include patients with peripheral artery disease, polyvascular disease and diabetes with a focus on the breadth of risk including ischemic limb outcomes, microvascular complications and major adverse cardiovascular events. In addition, he is actively investigating the cardiac, vascular and thrombotic complications associated with novel oncologic therapies.
