Who We Are
We are a team of over 600 faculty, staff and trainees representing eight University Colleges and 26 different departments dedicated to discovering new diagnostics and treatments for patients with acute and chronic disease. Our work spans from basic molecular and genetic research to large multi-center clinical trials. We have over $30 million in active annual research funding to support our research, and have published nearly 500 research articles this past year. As implied by our name, our teams are working each day to study the causes and treatments for diseases that affect the heart and lungs. However, our interests span across medicine with active research teams investigating diabetes and kidney disease, transplant medicine, stroke, skeletal muscle disorders, neurological disease, immune defects, sports medicine and regenerative medicine.
The research performed in our labs directly contributes to the health of patients in Ohio. However, these discoveries have a ripple effect that impact physicians, investigators and ultimately, patients throughout the world.
Knowing how important this is, the teams of The Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, founded with the support of William D. (Bill) and Jacquelyn L. Wells and the Davis Foundation are constantly searching for new, exciting and revolutionary ideas that will change the field of medicine.
