Research

The Cardiovascular Division is involved in multiple areas of active research including basic, translational, clinical, population, quality improvement, and medical education. Our research efforts are supported by full time Research Nurses.

Basic and translational research is conducted at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) which received the Northern New England Clinical and Translational Research Network (NNE-CTR) in 2017; a $20 million NIH grant in collaboration with the University of Vermont and the University of Southern Maine to build clinical research infrastructure for Northern New England. Funds are available to help develop pilot projects, provide expertise in biostatistics, bioinformatics, and trial design.

Fellows are expected to participate in ongoing research projects and to develop an investigative proposal that addresses a research question during their training and participate in monthly division research meetings. Senior fellows will present their projects at an annual Cardiovascular Division Grand Rounds.
