Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

What do we know about Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)

Mortality is similar between HFpEF and HFrEF but we have currently no viable therapeutic option for HFpEF. There have been many large trials, but they all failed. Our basic understanding of the disease is very limited which contributed to failures of many prior trials and wasting $$$. We know very little about the pathophysiology of the disease . It is time to get back to the basic science and use our new tools (e.g. imaging, genetics, physiology, etc) to gain mechanistic understanding of the disease to enable us developing effective therapies for this disease.
