The Department of Medicine is at the cutting edge in the development of novel therapeutics in multiple clinical arenas. It offers clinical trials in regenerative medicine including stem cell therapy post myocardial infarction and direct gene therapy in heart failure. We are internationally recognized for advanced clinical trials in the treatment of HIV and the development of new rapid testing of a broad range of infectious organisms using molecular beacons. The Department of Medicine is at the forefront of generating new insights into the mechanisms of diseases in Heart Failure, HIV, Tuberculosis, and in the areas of Immunity and Inflammation that underlie many chronic modern day illnesses.
