Chen, Chongjia, MD

7/1/22 – Present

Dr.  Chen is a second-year fellow in Allergy and Immunology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Chen graduated cum laude from Harvard College with an A.B. in Human Evolutionary Biology. She then earned her medical degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Prior to coming to BWH, she trained in internal medicine at Boston Medical Center

BWH was my first-choice program, and I am thrilled to be training here. I was drawn by the exceptional mentorship, clinical learning opportunities in a large practice, amazing research, and collaborative culture and environment. Currently, I am studying the effects of IL4Ra blockade on Th1/Th2 immunological shifts in AERD patients.”

Ramirez, Lourdes, MD

7/1/21 – Present

Dr. Ramirez received her bachelor’s degree from Florida International University, and her M.D. from the University of Central Florida. She did her pediatric residency at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital/Memorial Healthcare System.

I chose BWH mainly because of the wonderful faculty and fellows. The faculty is truly invested in the development of their trainees, both in the clinical and research realms. From a research perspective, BWH offers a wealth of opportunities and resources to build on specific interests, with mentors that are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about building a successful career. From a clinical perspective, BWH offers the highest quality care with providers that truly place patients first. The fellows exemplify compassion and ingenuity, and I have learned a tremendous amount with them by my side.

Cabrera-Perez, Javier, MD, PhD

7/1/21 – Present

Dr. Cabrera-Perez received his bachelor’s from Columbia University in the City of New York, and his combined M.D., Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota Medical School. He did his residency in Pediatric Medicine at Texas Children’s Hospital, through the Pediatrician-Scientist Program at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr Cabrera-Perez was the recipient of both NIH Technical and Postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Awards.

“I chose BWH because of the opportunities for research and clinical training across several hospitals and scientific centers in Boston, exposure to world-class faculty in Allergy and Immunology, and the impressive track record of training physician-scientists that the program boasts. Most importantly, my decision was heavily influenced by the personal commitment to trainees that our division chief, Dr Boyce, is known for, even outside of Brigham. I am currently working with Drs. Shiv Pillai and Jocelyn Farmer at the Ragon Institute of MGH, Harvard and MIT. My research projects focus on deciphering the B cell population changes after vaccination against SARSCoV2 in patients with Common Variable Immune Deficiency, as well as studies regarding the impact of acute inflammatory insults on the function and development of follicular T cells.”

Mehta, Geneva, MD

7/1/20 – Present

Dr. Mehta received her bachelor’s degree from Tufts University and her medical
doctorate from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston where she served as a Chief Resident for Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.

I chose to stay at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for Allergy Immunology fellowship because of the incredible faculty and staff that I had gotten to know while completing a research project in the division during residency. The division has a combination of warm inclusivity and academic rigor in which fellows thrive. My current research focuses on defining epidemiologic and genetic risk factors for atopic disease.

Huang, George, MD
