Research Grand Rounds: "Epidemiology of Heart Failure"

MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI) and the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) present Monthly Research Grand Rounds.

“Epidemiology of heart failure: cross-disciplinary insights from community-based cohort studies.”

Speaker: Vasan Ramachandran, MD

Dr. Ramachandran is the Jay and Louise Coffman professor in Vascular Medicine, Chief of the section of Preventive Medicine and Cardiovascular Epidemiology at Boston University, and Principal Investigator and Director of the Framingham Heart Study. His translational research has been transformative, both in and beyond cardio metabolic diseases, by finding synergies between powerful new laboratory, genetic, molecular, imaging, bioinformatics, and other methods with systematic clinical phenotyping in transgenerational cohort studies. The Framingham Heart Study, entering its 71st year, is the exemplar of practice-changing clinical and translational research and of leveraging such research for training and career development. Dr. Ramachandran’s own research interests include heart failure, echocardiography, high blood pressure, and risk prediction.
