  • Jerome L. Fleg, MD
    Dr. Jerome L. Fleg is a Medical Officer at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in Bethesda, MD. After receiving his MD from the University of Cincinnati, he completed training in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Dr. Fleg has spent his entire professional career at the National Institutes of Health, first at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and later at NHLBI. At NIA, he headed human cardiovascular (CV) studies in the Intramural Research Program from 1977 to 2002. His research focused on defining normative aging changes in CV structure and function and their relationship to future disease outcomes. Since joining the NHLBI in 2002, Dr. Fleg has focused on designing and implementing multicenter clinical trials in patients with CV disease. He is coeditor of Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly, now in its 6th edition.
