UNC Cardiology’s clinical trials group manages a range of industry-sponsored, federally-funded, and investigator-initiated trials for devices, pharmaceuticals, and procedures. A wide range of areas are covered by our active trials, including cardiac rhythm abnormalities, heart failure, hypertension, and post-heart attack care.

UNC Cardiology faculty are also at the forefront of basic, preclinical, and applied research through our partnership with the McAllister Heart Institute, a leading-edge center for research in cardiovascular disease. The McAllister Heart Institute is home to over 40 labs discovering new approaches to heart disease from disciplines including genetics, pharmacology, pathology, mathematics and biomedical engineering, among others.
