Deepak Voora, MD

Assistant Professor of Medicine

Deepak Voora, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine. He received his MD from the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. He subsequently completed a residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis before coming to Duke as a Cardiovascular Disease Research Fellow.

Dr. Voora's research interests lie in the area of cardiovascular pharmacogenetics. Using a broad array of genomic technologies from genotyping, resequencing, gene expression, and metabolomics he probes the response to a variety of cardiovascular medications. In particular, he is interested in studying the response to cholesterol lowering, antiplatelet, and anticoagulant medications as measured in humans. Through close collaborations across the University including the Duke Clinical Research Unit and the Duke Clinical Research Institute, Voora aims to discover genomic tools that are associated with drug response and to translate them into associations with clinical outcomes in patients with cardiovascular disease. His ultimate goal is to use genomics to individualize the use of such medications in order to improve health related outcomes and to avoid drug toxicity.
