The UA Sarver Heart Center's Focus Areas for Research
The University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center is enrolling patients for several clinical research trials to improve patient care for several cardiovascular diseases.
The University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center Resuscitation Research Group is world-renowned for decades of research that led to new CPR guidelines that advocate chest-compression-only CPR, a method that doubles a person’s chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.
Molecular Cardiovascular Research Program
Research in this area focuses on identifying problems at the molecular level and developing tests and treatments for clinical diseases of the heart.
Learn about ongoing research into Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy/Dysplasia (ARVC/D), an inherited condition that causes abnormal heart rhythms. ARVC/D may account for up to 20 percent of cases of sudden death among young people.
To help further new research in these areas, Sarver Heart Center funds annual Investigator Awards. Since 1995, members of the UA Sarver Heart Center have competed for seed grants to advance promising research.
