Cardiovascular Nursing Research

About the Cardiovascular Nursing Research group

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death across the U.S. among nearly every race and gender. Building on a history of excellence in cardiovascular science at the University of Rochester Medical Center, the School of Nursing’s cardiovascular nursing research group seeks to accelerate the pace at which new discoveries are implemented into patient care.

Driven by data science, emerging technologies, and investigators’ wealth of clinical experiences, this team of nurse scientists is working toward solutions to today’s most pressing issues in cardiac care. Our internationally recognized work has helped improve treatment and better predict outcomes among patients with heart conditions, and is shaping the future of nursing’s role in cardiac care.
