Research Workshops & Fellowship
University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute physician-scientists are nationally renowned for ongoing academic and biomedical research and education. By using translational research and advancements in biomedicine, the experts in our Cardiovascular Phenomics Core continue to improve industry standards and quality of patient care.
Our discoveries are achieved through a combination of federally funded research and sponsored research agreements with the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. This support provides our award-winning team of investigators the resources for success.
OCT/PCI Optimization Workshops
In addition to analyzing life-saving diagnostic technologies, the Cardiovascular Phenomics Core offers Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Optimization* Workshops to train medical professionals from around the world.
The two-day workshops focus on optical coherence tomography (OCT) physics and basic principles of OCT, followed by a hands-on portion the next day. The workshop covers OCT technology, clinical practices and potential applications.
There are two types of workshops:
- Physician Workshop, geared toward interventional cardiologists and cardiology fellows
- Super User Workshop, geared toward catheterization laboratory staff (nurses and radiology technicians)
For additional information or to register for an upcoming workshop, please email David Curran,Territory Manager for Abbott (formerly St. Jude Medical).

Cardiovascular Phenomics Research Fellowship
We offer a Cardiovascular Phenomics Research Fellowships to qualified candidates. The fellowship is for a minimum of one year and is unpaid. Each fellow will:
- Gain expertise in invasive (angiography, intravascular ultrasound, optical coherence tomography) and noninvasive (multi-slice computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging) cardiac imaging modalities
- Apply advanced imaging modalities for the investigation of new devices as well as vascular biology and drug effects in the cardiovascular system
