CLEVELAND – University Hospitals has recruited Atul Chopra, MD, PhD, to join Harrington Discovery Institute—part of The Harrington Project for Discovery & Development—at University Hospitals.
 
Dr. Chopra will serve as Investigator, Harrington Discovery Institute and Associate Director of the Harrington Rare Disease Program, which seeks to advance breakthrough research into novel treatments for rare diseases. In the U.S., rare disease is defined as one that affects less than 200,000 people and very often has no meaningful treatment. Dr. Chopra also joins University Hospitals as a faculty member in the Department of Medicine and Department of Genetics.
 
“Dr. Chopra is a young physician-scientist of great promise, having already made important discoveries in the field of genetics,” said Jonathan S. Stamler, MD, President, Harrington Discovery Institute. “Dr. Chopra will help us expand our rare disease program here and abroad so that we can support discoveries with greatest potential for impact in the fight against rare diseases.”
