Scientific Leadership Council Members

Members of the Scientific Leadership Council (SLC) serve as PHA’s leadership and are cardiologists, pulmonologists and rheumatologists – leading PH experts that branch out into all areas of scientific exploration and treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Not only do they guide the vast array of medical education PHA offers to both the medical and patient communities, they also are involved in the development of cutting edge research exploring various aspects of PH such as the implications of genetics in pulmonary hypertension, treatments for children living with PH, PH and associated diseases and much more.

Many past and present members of the SLC were involved in the creation of the Expert Consensus Document on Pulmonary Hypertension, lead in the development of the Journal Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension and the comprehensive treatment fact sheets and consensus statements available as resources on our website.
