Research in Cardiology
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.
Basic research in the Department of Cardiology excels in cutting edge discoveries in both cardiology and oncology.
Our work focuses on the role of inflammation and the two protein modification pathways that regulate cell proliferation, signal transduction and inflammation, as well as a collaboration involving adult stem cells.
