Our cardiac research team at Trinity participates in industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated research projects in a variety of cardiac subspecialties including invasive and non-invasive cardiology, electrophysiology, and heart failure management. In 2010, our cardiac research team participated in 14 research studies enrolling over 500 patients. Our goal in cardiac research is to incorporate the research findings into improved patient care measures and outcomes.
