Basic science and clinical research are top priorities for the Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Research Laboratories at the University of Virginia. Our laboratory has enjoyed a rich history of basic and clinical research, NIH funding and publications that address many of the clinical problems facing the cardiac, general thoracic, and vascular surgeons of today. Our laboratory places an emphasis on training research fellows in basic physiology, cell and molecular biology, and preparing them for careers in academic surgery. Trainees from our laboratory have entered successful academic careers not only in cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, but also in other fields such as liver and kidney transplantation, pediatric surgery, trauma, and general surgery. Our areas of research and other items of information are outlined below:
