Research Protocols

The Department of Cardiology is committed to advancing the frontier of medical knowledge through innovative clinical research. Most of the treatment paradigms in cardiology are based on clinical trials that exclude cancer patients. We are in the unique position to evaluate diagnostic or treatment strategies that affect our patient population.
