The researchers of the Johns Hopkins Heart and Vascular Institute continue to make new discoveries to advance the care and treatment of heart and vascular conditions.
Tapping into the Heart’s Strategy
Jennifer Lawton, M.D., and her team study a channel in heart cells that opens when energy is low to protect the heart. With more knowledge of the channel, their hope is to be able to open it with medications to reduce harm to the heart following heart surgery, heart attack or times of stress.
Physicians and researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine are constantly engaging in clinical trials to further the understanding and treatment of diseases and conditions of the heart and vascular system. To learn more about their current work or find clinical trials about a specific subject.
The Cardiovascular Precision Medicine Laboratory
Led by Dr. Hanghang Wang, this lab operates at the intersection of cardiac surgery, computational biology and bioengineering. With a focus on precision medicine, we are dedicated to creating personalized diagnostic and treatment modalities for cardiovascular diseases, integrating cutting-edge research into clinical practice. Our laboratory is also an integral component of the Broccoli Center for Aortic Diseases, further enhancing our research capabilities and clinical impact.
Women Cardiovascular Research
The American Heart Association's 'Go Red for Women' Research Network is a special initiative created by the American Heart Association (AHA) to raise awareness and improve the heart health of women.
This program also funds The Johns Hopkins’ Center for Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction.

Center for Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction
This center provides specialized care for patients diagnosed with this form of heart failure.
Combined Research InnovationResearch Collaboration
Johns Hopkins Medicine collaborates with Suburban Hospital and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for innovative research studies that enhance patient care. Our initiative has led us to discover faster treatment methods to reduce or prevent permanent heart damage.
Cardiovascular Training GrantMyocardial Disease Training Program
The Ruth L. Kirschstein Institutional Research Training Program (T32) is a post-doctoral research fellowship in pathophysiology of myocardial disease. This program provides a broad approach to cardiovascular research, allowing trainees to pursue any area of research.
