Regenerative Medicine Clinic

Led by Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, the Regenerative Medicine Clinic at the Smidt Heart Institute offers consultative services for patients with heart and vascular disease who may qualify for investigative stem cell therapy. 

The goal is to devise a comprehensive treatment strategy for patients who remain symptomatic on their current management regimen, or for patients with stable heart disease who are concerned about disease progression. As part of the overall assessment, we evaluate candidacy for participation in clinical trials at the Heart Institute.
