Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Medicine


The Division of Cardiology participates and leads investigator initiated study, registry design and analysis and multicenter investigation including both NIH and sponsored research studies. Via our close alignment with the Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute, we have a robust translational investigational program.  A strength of our division is the close alliance with the Department of Preventive Medicine which creates significant opportunities for population based research, studies of well phenotyped cohorts and advanced epidemiology. Our division is actively involved in clinical, translational and basic research. The breadth of our focus spans prevention, treatment of acute coronary syndromes and complex arrhythmias, device therapies and management strategies for advanced heart disease. We are actively engaged with fundamental research addressing regenerative therapies; exploring large databases to obtain a better understanding of the risk for cardiovascular disease; identifying better IT strategies to generate alerts and early interventions for common diseases like heart failure and atrial fibrillation; developing new interventions for structural heart disease including transcutaneous valve repair/replacements; advancing percutaneous procedures to treat hypertension; and exploring improved strategies to spur best quality and improved outcomes.
