In-Kind (e.g. administrative data sets, analysis platforms, facilities, employee salaries, professional, analytical, or other services)

Other: Pre-existing collaborative network from which to build in or upon to meet objectives of improved outcomes, including with industry stakeholders.

We would be able to leverage existing industry in-kind and cash contributions towards HQP training, experiential learning, alongside existing databases and product-services development for heart failure monitoring focused on patient self-management or formal/informal caregiver supported patient management. We have pre-existing partners and stakeholders as partners for research & patients care in vulnerable communities and with Indigenous communities. Please view our members and stakeholder partners.

I research how psychosocial factors influence cardiovascular outcomes. My PhD is in clinical psychology (from the University of Michigan) and Postdoc is in Cardiovascular Epidemiology/Social Epidemiology (from the Harvard School of Public Health). Our work has been cited in several American Heart Association Scientific Statements/Guidelines. I'm new to Canada and would be interested in joining a team where I could provide value. From a methods POV, I have expertise in analyzing cohort datasets using modern causal inference methods.

My research focuses on cardiac mechano-electric interactions, which is highly relevant to heart failure. My lab employs a multi-scale, multi-species experimental-computational approach, from whole animals to isolated tissue and cells from rabbit, mouse, and zebrafish, that combines mechanics, optical mapping, fluorescence microscopy, and optogenetics with mathematical modeling for comprehensive structure-function insight. I am also a part of the Cardiovascular Research Group at Dalhousie, which offers a wide breadth of basic and clinical research expertise.

In-Kind (e.g. administrative data sets, analysis platforms, facilities, employee salaries, professional, analytical, or other services) We support this effort to develop a Canadian HF Research Network. Through our experience, we want to help promote knowledge mobilization and citizen engagement through a patient-centered approach. We are prepared to provide in-kind contributions (e.g. data analytics, employee salaries, access to proprietary, and administrative datasets, facilities, etc.), as well as contact with patient-advocacy groups. We are further interested to collaborate towards a precision medicine approach that addresses the complexities of HF with the goal of helping vulnerable communities through preventive strategies.
