The seed of vascular biology in CV disease at Mount Sinai began with Valentin Fuster’s work and his recruitment of the future leaders that have now risen.

- Dr. Zahi Fayad is the leading researcher in molecular magnetic resonance imaging
- Dr. Juan Badimon’s animal models of experimental coronary artery disease have led to new discoveries regarding the nature of the disease
