Dr. LoGerfo is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of Rochester School of Medicine. He completed Surgery training at Boston University, including a year as Registrar in Surgery at the Cardiff Royal Infirmary. After two years of military service at Fort Meade, Maryland and an initial faculty appointment at the University of Maryland, he returned to Boston University. There he progressed from assistant professor to professor of surgery. In 1987 he moved to the Deaconess Hospital where he became Chief of Vascular Surgery and in 1994 was appointed the William V. McDermott Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. Dr. LoGerfo’s research is focused on improving the biocompatibility and function of prosthetic arterial grafts and minimizing the implantation injury associated with autogenous vein grafts. He established the NIH T32 “Harvard-Longwood Vascular Surgery Research Training “ , now in its 23rd year, for surgical residents to experience two years of mentored research. More recently he established a companion program for medical students to have a short term research experience.
