Jeffrey Goldberger, M.D., M.B.A., Chief of the Cardiovascular Division in the Department of Medicine at UHealth - the University of Miami Health System, is working on the development of new precision therapies that could dramatically improve the health outcomes of patients with A-fib. “We are developing potentially groundbreaking technologies,” said Goldberger, who is also a professor of medicine.
A new University of Miami Miller School of Medicine agreement with the government of The Bahamas provides the framework for collaborative initiatives in medical education, research, and clinical care, including stem cells and regenerative medicine. It also advances ongoing discussions about the possibility of establishing a new Miller School-supported medical school in The Bahamas.
The Miller School of Medicine rose one position in the national rankings of medical schools based on research grants received from the National Institutes of Health during the 2015 federal fiscal year. That gain is significant, considering the ongoing reductions in NIH grants that have caused many medical schools to fall in the rankings.
