Dr. Nayor is a physician-scientist and cardiologist with subspecialty training in advanced heart failure and transplantation. He completed medical school at New York University School of Medicine and residency training in internal medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Osler Training Program. He then went on to complete fellowships in Cardiovascular Medicine and Heart Failure and Transplantation at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He currently serves as Associate Professor in Medicine at Boston University Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine.

Dr. Nayor’s research uses physiologic studies and cardiovascular epidemiology to focus on the intersection of metabolic health and cardiovascular disease, especially heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). His NIH-funded laboratory is engaged in examining individual responses to discrete physiological perturbations, such as dietary stress or exercise, as precision phenotypes of impaired reserve capacity. By combining these assessments with high-throughput molecular screens (metabolomics, proteomics), Dr. Nayor’s laboratory has the ultimate goals of furthering understanding the underlying pathobiology, improving risk stratification, and potentially identifying novel therapeutic targets. He is also deeply committed to research mentorship and serves as one of the Principal Investigators of a R38 Residency Research Training Program and as Program Director of a T32 in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at BUSM.
