Over the past decade, Dr. Pompili and his research group have focused on the development and execution of development of cell-based therapy strategies in the treatment of cardiovascular disease.  Dr. Pompili has specifically worked in the arena of characterization of the function and use of hematopoietic stem cell for induction of angiogenesis in acute and chronic myocardial ischemia.
As a pioneer in the translation of bench work to clinical trial in this field, in 2006, Dr. Pompili and his team completed the one of the first clinical trials in the United States studying the safety and early efficacy of marrow-derived CD13 + cells in patients with chronic myocardial ischemia.
Over the past 5 years, with funding from the NIH and the Ohio Third Frontier Investment, Dr. Pompili has continued to characterize the use of both marrow-derived and umbilical cord hemangioblasts in clinical application.  Dr. Pompili’s group has also refined and studied techniques for in vitro expansion of hematopoietic stem cells using nanofiber matricies.  The group has also published and executed work on the capacity to genetically modify stem cells to augment functionality
Currently here at Ohio State University, Dr. Pompili and his team are leading 3 separate phase I and II clinical trials studying the safety and effects of stem cell therapy in patients after acute myocardial infarction and with chronic limb ischemia.
