Our Heart Centers

Our Heart Centers participate in more clinical research trials than any other cardiac program in New Jersey. For more than two decades, the cardiovascular research teams have been active participants in both industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated research projects in a variety of subspecialties including diagnostic, invasive, and non-invasive cardiology; electrophysiology; heart failure management; cardiothoracic surgery; and cardiac transplantation.

“Increasingly, patients do not accept the idea that there are no options,” says Mark J. Zucker, MD, JD, Director, Cardiothoracic Transplantation Program at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, principal investigator on several leading clinical trials. “Ultimately, clinical trials for cutting-edge technologies address the unmet need to provide therapies for people with end-stage heart failure when more traditional treatment options fail.” A spectrum of interventions is being evaluated by our team for patients with advanced heart failure.
