Atheendar Venkataramani, MD, PhD

I am a practicing physician and Assistant Professor of Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. My research examines the drivers of health and socioeconomic inequality.

I am the founding director of the Opportunity for Health Lab, a research group that seeks to identify policies and interventions that can jointly bolster economic opportunity and health in the United States. Our lab tries hard to ensure that our research is useful for policymakers.
