Dr. Bhatt commented, "I have always been attracted to advanced technologies with applications in cardiovascular intervention because of the potential to improve patient care.  I look forward to exploring the new possibilities for managing patients safely and effectively through technological advances in controllable drug systems."

David J. Mazzo, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Regado Biosciences, stated, "Dr. Bhatt is a world-class clinician and cardiovascular researcher, and we are honored to have him join our Medical Advisory Board.  His academic and clinical contributions have advanced the field significantly, and we look forward to gaining from his expert insight as we advance the ongoing Phase 3 REGULATE-PCI study of REG1."

Dr. Bhatt is currently Executive Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Programs at Brigham and Women's Hospital Heart and Vascular Center.  He is also a Senior Physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.  He has completed fellowships in interventional cardiology and cerebral and peripheral vascular intervention, authored or co-authored over 600 publications, and has been listed in Best Doctors in America from 2005 to the present.  He was the principal or co-principal investigator for a number of late-stage international cardiovascular clinical trials.

Dr. Bhatt was a National Merit Scholar at MIT before receiving his MD from Cornell University and completing his Masters in Public Health at Harvard University.  He performed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and completed his cardiovascular training at Cleveland Clinic.
