Carlin Long, MD

Cardiologist

Dr. Carlin Long is a cardiologist who specializes in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.

In the clinic, Long is particularly interested in engaging patients in self-care through apps and wearable technology that collect physiological data and help individuals integrate therapies and preventive measures into daily routines.

In more than 25 years of research, Long has studied how cells in the heart communicate with one another during normal and abnormal growth. His research focuses particularly on cardiac fibroblasts, cells that play a role in initiating the scarring process within heart muscle after injury. Long is also interested in how genome sequencing data can improve medicine.

Long earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He then completed both a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in cardiology at UCSF.

Over the years, Long has held a number of academic appointments at UCSF, where he is a professor of medicine, and the University of Colorado Denver, where he is also an adjunct professor of medicine.
