Clinical Research Interests:

Dr. Nambi's clinical research interests are in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and include the use of biomarkers and imaging in risk prediction and management of these patients with specific interests in peripheral and multi-bed atherosclerotic disease. DR Nambi will be studying patients with peripheral and multi-bed atherosclerotic disease to find novel biomarkers such as those associated with inflammation which may potentially help in better risk prediction and hence management of these patients. In addition he is interested in the use of ultrasound imaging for the evaluation of atherosclerosis with the help of initmal medial thickness and other novel ultrasound based imaging techniques. He will also be working on studies that use novel pharmacologic interventions in the management of atherosclerosis and focus on studies that utilize imaging for the assessment and evaluation of the same.
