Cardiovascular Institute

Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) is the nucleus for cardiovascular research at Stanford University. Formed in 2004, the Institute is home to Stanford's myriad cardiovascular-related adult and pediatric research, clinical, and educational programs, centers and laboratories, as well as over 500 Stanford basic scientists, graduate students, clinician scientists and other researchers in heart and vessel disease and prevention.

Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Lab

The Stanford Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Lab research program is focused on three aspects of surgery for congenital cardiac disease:

Faculty Publications

The Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery is dedicated to the principles of vision, perseverance, and rigorous scientific investigation in its commitment to conducting well-conceived, cutting-edge research. The department generates dozens of peer-reviewed journal publications annually in its efforts to maintain its respected status among cardiothoracic research groups worldwide.

Clinical Trials

Stanford clinician scientists are engaged in a wide variety of clinical trials investigating new approaches to preventing and treating conditions and diseases. The variety of therapies being studied range from new pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices to behavioral and biotechnology therapies. These trials are done in close collaboration with scientists and physicians from many areas of expertise across Stanford University. To insure the highest ethical standards are maintained the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for oversight of all studies.
