Regenerative cardiac synchronization: a translational study

Translational Research Grant

Research Grant Recipient: Satsuki Yamada, MD, PhD

Grant Period: 2017-2019

Award Value: $250,000

Site: Mayo Clinic

Summary: Heart attacks damage heart walls, compromising the pumping function of the heart. Dr. Yamada is investigating the use of patient’s own stem cells as a new therapy to help reestablish and maintain a synchronized pumping motion in the infarcted heart.

Satsuki Yamada, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and a physician-scientist in the Division of Cardiovascular Diseases at Mayo Clinic. She also works with the Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program and the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo.
