Research

A sampling of the papers and abstracts published by our faculty and fellows

Our program provides fellows with exposure to faculty and mentors who are leaders in the fields of clinical and translational research. Fellows gain skills in clinical investigation, translational cardiology, therapeutics, procedure-related research and critical appraisal of literature. Over the past 5 years, our fellows have presented numerous abstracts at local and national conferences, and written many peer-reviewed publications. The following is a sample of some of the work produced by our fellows:
