In addition to my clinical responsibilities as an interventional cardiologist, my research interests include the study of antithrombotic therapies in cardiovascular disease and biomedical informatics and information technologies.

My research is applied (clinical research), primarily focusing on the evaluation of technologies in the clinical arena.

I have participated in numerous clinical trials and have also conducted several multicenter studies, including the EPIC, PROLOG, EPILOG, EPISTENT, IMPACT, IMPACT II, TOTAL, PRIDE, ESPRIT, MEND-1, and ELECT Trials.

My areas of expertise are an outgrowth of my clinical research, and includes use of the new antiplatelet therapeutics in the treatment of coronary artery disease; treatment of unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction; quality assurance and quality improvement; application of informatics and information technology to the delivery of care; and the application of excimer laser coronary angioplasty in the treatment of coronary artery disease.

Key words: angioplasty, excimer laser, platelet glycoproteins, computers, clinical trials.
