The Center for Interventional Cardiovascular Research and Clinical Trials

Our Work

As one of the leading resources for cardiovascular research, our work and our faculty have been recognized with numerous awards and accolades. More importantly, the dissemination of our work through publications, at conferences and through our global connections has a continuous global impact on how patients are treated.  Together with The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and our vast web of resources, we hope to make a positive, lasting imprint on the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.


Since our Center’s inception in 2010, we have created in-house databases for multicenter international registries and randomized controlled trials and have produced over 700 clinically-relevant manuscripts and publications.  As investigators, fellows and exchange research scholars go through study experiences with us, the volume of our high impact publications grows ever larger, creating opportunities for far reaching education.

Publications are tracked from initial concept proposals, through development, drafting and editing phases.  We provide central coordination of manuscript submissions and revisions, including all aspects of manuscript formatting and completion of online paperwork requirements.  We maintain active libraries of references, slides and figures as well as a current database of author contacts, DOI documents and resolution.  

Our work has been published in the highest-impact journals including;

  • New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM)
  • The Lancet
  • Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
  • Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC)
  • Circulation

Education and Implementation

Our faculty, fellows and research scholars not only present regularly at major cardiovascular conferences around the world, but our center also develops novel educational programs which help to shape the landscape of global cardiovascular care.  Examples include online and live programs for practicing physicians and allied health professionals, as well as think tank programs which bring key stakeholders together for shared learning and innovative decision making.

Therapeutic-specific preceptorships on site at Mount Sinai provide our industry colleagues with an opportunity to engage with our world-renowned faculty, participate in meaningful dialogue and gather a real world understanding of practice environments.

In order to capture the attention of today's healthcare providers, we understand that short, impactful, and often digital education is an effective means of widely disseminating new information. Projects like our upcoming Lancet Women and Cardiovascular Disease Commission will be distributed both in print and digitally.

Mount Sinai is a Jointly Accredited Provider of ACCME, ANCC and ACPE continuing education credits.
