Cardiovascular Institute researchers are at the absolute forefront of cardiac research. The majority of our work is translational research, which brings new discoveries and treatments directly from the lab to the patient. Our eligible patients are frequently offered the opportunity to participate in clinical research, giving them access to the newest treatments and allowing for state-of-the-art care.

CVI’s ongoing research and clinical trials include:

Coronary Artery (Heart) Disease

Congestive Heart Failure

Vascular Disease / Peripheral Artery Disease
