Dr. Pineda is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center and an interventional cardiologist at Banner-University Medical Center Tucson (North and South Campus).
He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease and board eligible in vascular medicine and echocardiography.
Dr. Pineda earned his combined MD-PhD at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine with a research focus on computational biophysical studies of ligand binding and catalysis by enzymes. He completed his internal medicine residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF) in Cleveland, Ohio, followed by a clinical fellowship in vascular medicine, also at CCF. He then completed a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at the University of Arizona and a research fellowship at Banner-University Medical Center in Tucson, after which he then completed an interventional cardiology fellowship at the University of Arizona.
His clinical interests include:
Cardiovascular care of patients with cancer who develop cardiovascular toxicities from their treatment
Dr. Pineda's research interests include ligand binding to the thin filament through computational biophysical (in silico) studies and validation by in vitro and in vivo experiments to understand the cardiotoxic effects of some chemotherapeutics.
