At Rhode Island Hospital, the Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) was
founded in 2005 in affiliation with The Warren Alpert Medical School of
Brown University. The CVRC focuses its research on the molecular
mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias, sudden cardiac arrest, hypertrophy
(heart enlargement) and heart failure. Pursuing myriad research
models—from hormone therapy to the role of fibroblasts and the effects
of aging—our researchers work daily to find ways to prevent death from
sudden cardiac arrest.
A few of the projects we are currently working on include:
