What attracted me to Ohio State? The opportunity to create new platforms for translational research by forming teams of experts from diverse clinical and scientific backgrounds. Our unique approach has resulted in groundbreaking research discoveries in cardiovascular medicine and several other human diseases – discoveries that will impact patients not only at Ohio State, but across the globe.
How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? Our team at the Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, part of Ohio State’s Heart and Vascular Center, is focused on determining why patients develop abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia) and heart failure. Our findings will be used to develop new methods and technologies for diagnosing and treating patients with cardiovascular disease.
But for Ohio State... patients all across central Ohio would not have received a second chance at life. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, and I am proud to know that our discoveries have directly benefitted heart disease patients at Ohio State and have guided the treatment of individuals across the country
Ohio State’s reputation for excellence is drawing world-class talent to Columbus. We have attracted more than 215 experts in 2 years, and 87 percent of central Ohio’s Best Doctors are Ohio State faculty. Through their skill and dedication, we are delivering on our promise to improve people’s lives, and giving central Ohioans access to the very best care.
