Biography

Stavros G Drakos is an Associate Professor of Cardiology with Tenure, Co-Chief Heart Failure and Transplant Section, Medical Director of the Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) Program and Investigator at the Eccles Institute of Human Genetics, U of Utah. His clinical and translational research interests are focused on cardiac recovery associated with unloading and MCS in both the chronic HF setting and the acute setting (i.e. acute HF/cardiogenic shock). He has published original work generated both in the clinical arena and in the laboratory which led to the establishment of the Utah Cardiac Recovery Program (UCAR). His ongoing clinical and labbased research is focused on understanding the clinical, metabolic and molecular profile of the recovered human heart and utilize biological information and clinical characteristics derived from these studies to understand, predict and manipulate cardiac recovery applicable to all stages of HF. Dr. Drakos is co-chairing the NIH/NHLBI Working Group 'Advancing the Science of Myocardial Recovery with Mechanical Circulatory Support'.
