Areas of Interest
All areas of general cardiology with a particular focus on interventional cardiology.
Vascular biology; Smooth muscle cell growth regulation, particularly integrin/cytoskeletal interactions; Regulation of thrombin and thrombus formulation during interventions; Cardiovascular hemodynamics.
Dr. Stouffer’s science research is in the areas of regulation of smooth muscle cell growth, the role of the smooth muscle cytoskeleton in regulating signaling pathways, thrombin generation, and renal artery stenosis. Clinical research is in cardiovascular hemodynamics, atherosclerosis risk factors and optimal use of CYP2C19 genotyping to select anti-platelet therapy.
His work has been cited in multiple medical publications. His study on survival rates for in-hospital heart attacks was featured in The Wall Street Journal.
