University Hospitals Case Medical Center’s physician-scientists, who also serve as faculty at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, are world leaders in heart and vascular medicine. Their ongoing clinical research programs are pushing the boundaries of medical progress. A strong emphasis on translational, or “bench-to- bedside,” research means that new and innovative treatments and technologies transfer more rapidly from the research laboratory to life-enhancing patient care.
Within University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute at UH Case Medical Center, clinicians working with patients and scientists focused on research work together as part of the same team. With this model, the institute advances care through discovery.
UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute’s Research & Innovation Center was established in 2006 in affiliation with the Case Cardiovascular Research Institute to foster discoveries in cardiovascular disease, therapies and technologies. Building upon a legacy of innovation that began nearly 150 years ago at UH Case Medical Center, a number of programs and initiatives are helping forge medicine’s future, including the following:
These and other UH Case Medical Center advances are poised to benefit the lives of patients affected by heart and vascular diseases for generations to come.
Some of the clinical research studies in progress within our center include:
Among the nation’s leading academic medical centers, University Hospitals Case Medical Center is the primary affiliate of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, a nationally recognized leader in medical research and education.
