Researchers at the University of Florida have received a $3.5 million grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, or NHLBI, to study the effect of using genetic information to guide therapy after an angioplasty heart procedure to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
Larisa Cavallari, Margaret James, Jatinder Lamba and Almut Winterstein will serve three-year terms beginning in the 2019 academic year.
UF Health researchers have found a quick, precise genetic test can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular events by helping to identify more effective medication for some heart patients.
At the conclusion of the first year of UF Health’s Personalized Medicine Program, the results are in: The program has successfully implemented a process for genetic testing that helps cardiologists identify which patients may benefit from a switch to an alternate anticlotting medication. The researchers published a review of the…
