Carolyn Lam is Professor of Medicine at Duke-National University of Singapore and Senior Consultant Cardiologist at the National Heart Centre Singapore.

She is world-renown for her expertise in heart failure, and particularly heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. This type of heart failure affects mostly elderly women, is the predominant type in ageing societies worldwide and represents one of the largest unmet needs in cardiovascular medicine.

Dr. Lam is also well-known for championing women in cardiovascular science and is a role model for many young female doctors in cardiovascular medicine world-wide. She is passionate about investigating sex differences in cardiovascular disease, including the role of gender disparities, and established the first Women’s Heart Clinic in 2011 – the first in Asia - a unique clinical service, tailored to the specific needs of women.

Dr. Lam is famous for her communication skills and is familiar to the Singapore public as Resident Doctor of the health television program “Body and Soul”.
