CVI Research Description:
I am actively involved in heart failure clinical research including novel devices and drugs. I have an active RO1 to evaluate novel technologies in heart failure disease management. In addition, I have a collaboration with the Division of Neurobiology and Sleep Medicine evaluating the impact of sleep apnea on heart failure. I am an active member of the American College of Cardiology Health Information Technology Committee.
