Current Projects

Our ongoing research projects and clinical trials are designed to uncover groundbreaking insights that will bridge stem cell science and bedside treatment strategies for patients suffering from heart and vascular diseases.

Stem Cell Clinical Trials

Texas Heart Institute (THI) conducts research through clinical trials as part of our mission to improve heart health. The trials conducted at THI are designed to test the safety and effectiveness of innovative new treatments and medications for patients.

Our Trials

Partnership with CCTRN

Through our prestigious partnership with the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN) and industry sponsors, several clinical trials are currently underway. These clinical studies leverage previous discoveries and findings made by the department and represent a promising path to the first approved cell therapy to treat heart failure.
