Dae Kim, M.D., M.P.H.

Adjunct Scientist, Institute for Aging Research
Staff Geriatrician, Division of Gerontology
Assistant Professor of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School
Pharmacoepidemiologist, Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital

As a geriatrician and clinical investigator, Dr. Kim’s research focuses on developing practical algorithms to facilitate personalized clinical decision-making in older adults.  One of his research interests is to develop prognostic models for activity of daily living disability that may be more meaningful than mortality for many older individuals.  Another complementary area is to predict individuals’ response or risk-benefit profile to a treatment.  Especially, Dr. Kim is interested in using functional outcomes and disability as main measures of treatment effectiveness in older adults with advanced cardiovascular disease.  He wants to redefine more patient-centered clinical endpoints and develop alternative methods to evaluate heterogeneity of treatment effects.

Dr. Kim participates in formal and informal clinical and research teaching activities for Harvard Medical School students, medicine residents, and geriatrics fellows at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  He also mentors research fellows and leads two workshops in the Program in Clinical Effectiveness course at Harvard School of Public Health.
