With more than 500 publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, Dr. Epstein is a recognized international authority on angiogenesis and on the use of stem cells as a cardiovascular therapeutic. He and his colleagues have also developed, using circulating biomarkers, a strategy that allows detection of individual patients with CAD who have one or more atherosclerotic plaques that are at high risk of rupturing. Another research interest of Dr. Epstein and his colleagues is the use of nanoparticle technology as a drug delivery strategy for targeting the delivery of therapeutic agents to relevant cardiovascular tissues.
