Dr. Szapary is a Penn Medicine physician who is employed by or has a contract with the Clinical Practices of the University of Pennsylvania.
I continue to work in the Cardiovascular Prevention Clinic in the Perleman Center 2 half days per month seing patients for complicated dyslipidemias, hypertension, obesity, diabetes and CV risk stratification.
Since 2012, I have also started seing patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for CV risk evaluation and treatment. This came out of my research interest in these diseases and my collaboration with Dr. Nehal Mehta (cardiology) and Joel gelfand (Dermatology).

My expertise is in the clinical development of novel pharmaceutical compounds both large and small molecules.
Since leaving the full-time faculty at the University of Pennsylvania in 2005, I have worked in Cardiovascular early stage drug development (Phase 0-2)and immunology late stage development (Phase 2b-3). From 2005-2007, I worked at Wyeth Research focused on nuclear hormone receptor targets (PPAR, FXR, LXR) in dyslipidemia and diabetes.
From 2007 onward, I have worked on the clinical development of novel monoclonal antibodies targeting IL-12 and/or IL-23 in immune mediated diseases. This work led to the global approval of ustekinumab (Stelara) in 65+ countries for moderate to severe psoriasis. Currently I am focused on developing ustekinumab in psoriatic arthrtitis as well as overseeing a a Phase 3 program in Crohn's Disease and a proof of concept study in Rheumatoid Arthritis. This body of work led to Stelara being awarded the 2012 International Prix Galien Award for Best Product.
