Our Department

Since 1962, The Texas Heart Institute (THI) has impacted global heart health and cardiac care through its mission and unwavering focus on progressive clinical research programs.

Today, the pursuit of our mission continues with the same pioneering spirit that has defined The Texas Heart Institute for over five decades.

THI’s clinical research teams include renowned physician researchers, scientists and engineers who are working tirelessly to develop, and safely test more effective and less invasive treatments.


The clinical research underway at THI is vital to advance the science of medicine.

Through clinical research, and patients who volunteer to participate in our programs, we gain answers to important questions about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.

Together, we are generating critical knowledge and discoveries that translate to the development of new medicines and therapies for cardiovascular disease.
