Dr Redberg’s research interests are in our use of medical procedures and devices. She studies the regulatory process for medical devices and the strength of evidence that supports them, particularly high-risk devices, both before and after they are marketed. She is a strong proponent of high-quality data to support safety and effectiveness for medical devices, in order to provide the best quality and appropriate medical care and advice. Dr Redberg has testified before Congress multiple times on these issues.

She is the Editor-in-Chief of JAMA Internal Medicine, a highly ranked international medical journal, and spearheaded the Less is More series highlighting areas of health care with no benefit. Dr Redberg also serves on the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, which advises Congress on medical payment policy.

Dr. Redberg has written, edited and contributed to many books, including “You Can Be a Woman Cardiologist,” “Heart Healthy: The Step-by-Step Guide to Preventing and Healing Heart Disease,” and “Coronary Disease in Women: Evidence-Based Diagnosis and Treatment.”
