Ian M. Graham, MD


Professor Graham is an academic cardiologist and international leader in preventive cardiology.

He received his MD from Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland and has spent most of his career as cardiologist and research director for St. Vincent’s Hospital and for the Irish Heart Foundation. He has been particularly active in medical prevention as chair of the Joint European Societies Cardiovascular Prevention Committee, co-author of its Joint Recommendations, and a leader of prevention demonstrations.

His main research interests are in the natural history of coronary heart disease, cardiovascular risk prediction, defining the role of new risk markers and integrating them with the “old” CVD risk factors. His recent survey of European practitioners pointed up the professional, patient, and social factors impeding the effectiveness of medical strategies in CVD prevention. (HB)
