Integrated Research Groups
The Winters Center has two integrated research groups. One research group is an Integrative Biology Core, that is responsible for identifying mechanisms of disease in heart failure, as well as identifying novel therapeutic targets for heart failure patients. The second research group is a Translational Medicine Core that conducts phase I, II, III, IV clinical trials that focus on novel therapeutic agents and/or devices for heart failure patients. The Translational Medicine Core also conducts studies in
health outcomes research in heart failure.
The Winters Center is fully integrated with the DeBakey Heart Center, the Cardiac Transplant Program at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital and the Texas Heart Institute, the Section of Cardiology and the Health Outcomes Research Services at Baylor College of Medicine.
