Summary of the University of Miami/Jackson Health System’s Research Program
Our CCM research consists of the collection of samples from the operating room to assess genetic and molecular alterations that lead to the formation, progression, and rupture of CCMs.
Our clinical research focuses on the assessment of outcomes of treated and untreated CCM patients. We also are investigating novel minimally invasive means to remove CCMs.
