By examining how loss of lung function between young adulthood and middle age associated with changes in the heart, Northwestern Medicine scientists identified two heart-lung phenotypes that may form the basis for diseases that develop later in life.
Enrollees in Feinberg’s Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) program developed research projects including a yoga intervention for patients with Parkinson’s disease and a cardiovascular risk assessment for cholesterol guidelines.
Higher neighborhood segregation is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease for blacks and a lower risk for whites, according to a recent Northwestern Medicine study.
Northwestern Medicine scientists used “big data” tools to classify for the first time three distinct categories of a common heart failure syndrome. The findings may be used to better predict how diverse patients will respond to treatments.
In a recent review published in Nature Reviews Cardiology, Northwestern Medicine investigators outline strategies to reduce the rate of early postdischarge adverse events among patients with heart failure.
A new Northwestern Medicine study provides evidence suggesting that high systolic blood pressure in younger adults increases their future cardiovascular disease risk.
Northwestern Medicine scientists are developing an MRI test to detect heart transplant complications that is less costly and invasive than current biopsy protocols.
Medical students conduct cardiovascular health risks screenings and counsel participants on exercise, nutrition and other lifestyle changes in the Keep Your Heart Heathy program.
A new Northwestern Medicine study identified the pathway that mediates the link between diabetes and cardiomyopathy.
Students and faculty mentors share the importance of the Area of Scholarly Concentration, a four-year longitudinal project in biomedical research or a medically related field, as part of the new curriculum.
