Cardiac Surgery Research
In the University of Michigan Department of Cardiac Surgery, clinical investigators and laboratory researchers work together every day to develop a
deeper understanding of, and promising approaches to solving and treating heart disease.
Our research is providing fundamental insights into identifying methods to grow new heart muscle, identify natural phytochemicals and dietary
nutrients to protect cardiac function, improve outcomes for children with congenital heart disease, and
study mechanical ventricular assist devices that provide a life-saving bridge to transplant.
Through these endeavors – and many more like them – our researchers are working together to identify and implement real solutions for
patients of today and tomorrow.
