We sought to derive and validate a pre-Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) score for cardiovascular risk stratification of HSCT candidates.  We identified subset variables of most predictive post-HSCT cardiovascular events and developed point-based risk score using hazard ratios.  The CARE-BMT risk score is easy to calculate and can be a useful tool for clinicians to identify patients high-risk for cardiovascular events undergoing HSCT before transplant and guide long-term monitoring.

 The Cardiac Biomarkers lab is a quickly growing lab with both clinical and basic research projects. Our research centers on the novel use of biomarkers for predictive and prevention-based diagnoses and disease treatment.  The lab's ultimate goal is to use high-throughput technology to personalize patient care.
