James Harold Revkin MD, FACC, FACP, FCCP

Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine (Cardiology); Attending Physician: Cardiology Fellows Clinic

Research Interests

My clinical research efforts have focused on a broad range of areas in cardiovascular medicine, including heart failure, heart transplantation, myocardial metabolism and, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and thrombosis.

Extensive Research Description

My most current activities have been related to the design, conduct, and interpretation of data for large, industry sponsored, cardiovascular outcomes trials in the area of atherosclerosis, thrombosis, hypertension, and diabetes. I am a subject matter expert in use of vascular imaging biomarkers to assess the clinical efficacy of pharmaceutical agents in slowing the progression of atherosclerosis.
