Our nationally-known team of investigators have made breakthrough discoveries in the field of Cardiovascular Disease. Researchers in the Division of Cardiovascular Disease are involved in a wide variety of basic, translational, and clinical research. The primary goal of the Division of Cardiovascular Disease is to actively promote innovative, interdisciplinary and translational cardiovascular research. A vast array of distinct, yet often complementary, basic and translational studies are continuously ongoing within the Division, with the ultimate goal of improving the care of CVD patients. A commonly employed strategy for research programs within the division includes identification of clinically-relevant cardiovascular issues, utilization of appropriate model systems and state-of-the-art molecular, cellular, and physiological techniques to reveal unique mechanistic insight, and translating these findings back towards the clinic.

The environment within the division is highly collaborative, thereby fostering cross-cutting research. Division faculty consist of a mixture of basic science and clinical researchers, providing an ideal environment for training and career development of residents and fellows in a translational manner.
