The Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute doctors and researchers study the causes and development of heart disease in a continuing search for new and better treatments. Biomedical clinical research is a major component of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's mission and is critical to its commitment of maintaining excellence in patient care.
Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute investigators are currently conducting more than 100 clinical research projects with 65 unique Principal Investigators. These encompass basic, translational, clinical and health services research and cover the entire spectrum of disease investigation, including stem cell therapy, new imaging modalities, genomics, new devices, genetics, and specific disease-based areas such as hypertension, cholesterol management, angina, cardiomyopathy, valvular disorders, transplantation and other surgical interventions and many others. With our bench-to-bedside approach to clinical research, some of our work leads to paradigm shifts and dramatic changes in patient care.
