Karina Davidson, PhD
Dr. Karina Davidson, Professor of Behavioral Medicine in Medicine and Psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and Director of the Center for Behavioral & Cardiovascular Health, is an expert on behavioral and psychosocial interventions for patients with cardiovascular disease and she has conducted randomized controlled trials of anger management and depression treatment for both hypertensive and post-myocardial infarction patients. Her research team recently completed a multi-site, multi-project NIH contract exploring the etiology, course and randomized controlled treatment of depressive symptoms in patients with acute coronary syndromes, and this research continues by examining depression phenotypes and their biobehavioral mechanisms in a NHLBI-funded program project. Most recently they conducted an NHLBI-funded randomized controlled trial to test if enhanced depression treatment vs. current treatment improves survival in acute coronary disease patients at sites across the U.S. Other research activities include being the Convening Chair of the Cochrane Behavioral Medicine Field, an international effort to review and synthesize evidence for behavioral medicine interventions. She also formed and was the Chair of the Evidence-based Behavioral-Medicine committee, a task force charged by 7 national and international societies with improving and implementing evidence-based principles within behavioral medicine. Finally, Dr. Davidson led the NIH-funded Summer Institute on Conducting Randomized Controlled Trials with Behavioral Interventions, a U.S-based effort to improve the expertise of the next generation of leaders in behavioural trials.

She is also a psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Davidson's patient-oriented research focuses on behavioral and biopsychosocial influences on cardiovascular disease, including mechanisms by which these factors influence cardiovascular risk and interventions for reducing that risk. In a number of observational cohort studies, she has identified important psychosocial risk factors for incident and recurrent cardiac events and mortality, and the physiological and behavioral mechanisms by which that risk is conferred. She has also conducted randomized, controlled trials for managing anger or depression to examine possible improvements in quality of life, cardiovascular, and cost outcomes. Dr. Davidson has also conducted research in clinical and translational science, particularly in health care system identification of depression and other psychosocial factors related to cardiovascular care. Dr. Davidson is an editorial board member of Psychosomatic Medicine and Clinical Trials and a reviewer for the Journal of the American Medical Association, Circulation, and Journal of American College of Cardiology. She is also president of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research. Previously, she was president of the Health Psychology Division of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Davidson is past chair of the Society of Behavioral Medicine's Evidence-Based Behavioral Medicine Committee, a group charged with improving and implementing evidence-based principles for behavioral medicine researchers, practitioners, and students.
