Productive and prominent programs in basic, clinical, and translational research are fundamental to the development of clinical excellence and our academic mission. Our surgeons actively conduct leading-edge studies that significantly contribute to the science of cardiac health and care.
Time and again, findings from our surgeons have been published in leading and peer-reviewed medical journals and have been recognized with prestigious awards and achievements.
Funding for research projects have included support from National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
Led by our faculty surgeons, research programs also include involvement by Yale University medical students, residents, and pre– and postdoctoral fellows.
