The Section of Cardiology in the University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Medicine has a long and distinguished history.
In the late 1970s, the section came to national prominence for its contributions to the emerging area of clinical electrophysiology. Since the late 1990s, the section again has gained nationwide recognition, this time for its research efforts in the cellular mechanisms of heart failure. In 2000, US News & World Report ranked the section among the top 40 cardiology programs in the United States.
The Section is privileged to be in an intensive research environment with more than 15 laboratories focused on defining cures for cardiovascular diseases. Major research funding for the Section of Cardiology and the Center for Cardiovascular Research includes more than $10 million in annual National Institutes of Health support, including a collaborative program project and training grants in conjunction with the UIC Department of Physiology. The University of Illinois Cardiology Program has ranked first in the Chicago area in NIH funding and either first or second for American Heart Association funding each of the past ten years.
