Heart Disease

The Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute is leading a new era in heart research and patient care. A gift from you enables our researchers and clinicians to pursue unprecedented science.

Hearts That Heal Themselves
Our scientists continue to push the bounds of biomedicine with stem cell technology. They are exploring the best methods to use powerful heart stem cells to restore health to damaged heart tissue.

More Enduring Transplants
To extend the lives of transplanted hearts in patients, we are exploring immunosuppressive therapies, and noninvasive tools to detect rejection.

Total Artificial Heart
The Total Artificial Heart is a revolutionary solution for patients with end-stage heart disease. The Heart Institute offers this advanced, life-sustaining device as a bridge to a heart transplant.

A Vaccine for Clogged Arteries
We are developing a vaccine against arterial plaque buildup—a game-changing achievement that would make high blood pressure a past threat and save countless lives.

Ending Sudden Death
The Heart Institute is the global focal point for understanding sudden cardiac arrest. We are uncovering the genetic underpinnings of this lethal and unpredictable condition—and revolutionizing the way doctors identify it.
