The SCRI was established in 2005 to advance the understanding and treatment of cardiovascular disease, which is the nation’s # 1 killer. Uniquely qualified Registered Nurse Research Coordinators, along with the cardiac physicians, collaborate with local institutions, government agencies and biomedical companies to perform clinical research trials. Ultimately the work of the SCRI enables clinicians to improve clinical care delivery, patient outcomes and the overall health of our community. For more information visit our website at .

Our services cover all types of cardiovascular research such as medical devices, heart failure, electrophysiology, cardiac surgery, cardiac interventional procedures and medical management of CAD risk factors such as diabetes and lipid management, among others. Research nurses educate, consent and follow research participants through the entire process. They coordinate all aspects of the patient’s experience and advocate for them. As such, we have a presence in almost all departments in the CVT Operating Center.

Our program currently has ten SCRI research nurses who are highly autonomous and self directed. Collectively, they coordinate over 80 clinical trials.
