Current activities in the Department of Medicine are primarily directed towards patient care. As a result, I will continue to be involved in clinical trials relating to patients with coronary artery disease undergoing thrombolytic therapy, anti-platelet therapy, and the various modalities of interventional procedures as well as the evaluation for restenosis in these patients.
