Researchers in the Division of Cardiology continue to strive for the cutting edge, employing new technologies and treatments for the benefit of patients and continuing a strong tradition of procuring research funding from federal, industry, and foundation sources. The major strengths of the research program center on translational genetics, heart failure, sudden death, molecular imaging, and outcomes research. In addition, there are robust and active cardiology clinical trials that include sponsor-initiated drug trials and IDE trials.
Researchers in the division present at national and international cardiology meetings, including the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, the Heart Rhythm Society, the American Society of Echocardiography, the American Society for Nuclear Cardiology, Heart Failure Society of America, Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) and the International Society for Hearth and Lung Transplantation. Additionally, the Division of Cardiology researchers and physicians published important manuscripts in top cardiovascular journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation Research, Circulation, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
