Discovery through collaboration
The Ohio State University Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute employs a team approach to synergize discovery in biomedical research.
We believe that creativity and innovation are collaborative processes that rely on the participation of many to translate research discoveries at the laboratory bench to the hospital clinic. Our roots are in the College of Medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, but our members include faculty from all branches of The Ohio State University. We are cardiologists, geneticists, pulmonologists, surgeons, engineers, pharmacists, nurses and clinical trial specialists. We are physicists, genetic counselors, epidemiologists, nephrologists, pediatricians, infectious disease researchers, and biostatisticians. We are biochemists, physiologists, anesthesiologists, sports medicine specialists and athletic trainers, cell biologists and family and emergency medicine physicians.
We are undergraduate biochemistry students and cardiothoracic surgeons working side-by-side to create new and innovative cell-based therapies for lung transplant. We are genetics graduate students and electrophysiologists working together to understand arrhythmia and sudden death in athletes. We are cardiology fellows, biomedical engineering physicists and heart failure cardiologists collaborating to design new algorithms for cardiac imaging in children. Finally, we are groups of staff, faculty and students working with Columbus and the central Ohio community to promote health and wellness.
