Iris Z. Jaffe, MD, PhD has been elected into the Association of American Physicians (AAP).

Iris Jaffe, MD is a cardiologist at Tufts Medical Center.

Iris Z. Jaffe, MD, PhD has been elected into the Association of American Physicians (AAP). This prestigious honorary medical society, founded in 1885, is composed of 1,200 active members.

The AAP recognizes physician-scientists for outstanding achievement in advancing basic or translational biomedical research and its application to clinical medicine. Members serve as role models to inspire early career physician-scientists.

“I am honored and humbled to be elected to join the remarkable clinician-investigators that have been part of the AAP since it was founded by William Osler in 1885.” said Dr. Jaffe. “I look forward to continuing the AAP tradition of advancing science as a foundation to improve patient care and I hope that my membership will provide me with more opportunities to mentor future clinician-scientists.”

Dr. Jaffe’s research has identified novel molecular mechanisms underlying common cardiovascular disorders including hypertension, atherosclerosis, vein graft failure, and pulmonary hypertension. She has advanced our understanding of the impact of aging and obesity on vascular disease and how these mechanisms are sexually dimorphic. Her laboratory has been supported by the National Institutes of Health for more than fifteen years during which she has mentored over 40 trainees.

Dr. Jaffe will be inducted into the AAP on April 9, 2021 at its virtual meeting, reflecting her outstanding contributions to medical science.
