The Gorman Cardiovascular Research Group (GCRG) is made up of a cohesive group of cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologist, radiologists, engineers, computer scientists, physiologist and molecular biologists. The organization is lead by two surgeon-engineers - Joseph H. Gorman, III, MD and Robert C. Gorman, MD. The mission of the GCRG is to develop innovative and, when possible, less-invasive strategies for the treatment of structural cardiovascular disease by the disciplined application of basic science and engineering principles. Understanding the mechanical and geometric characteristics of cardiovascular tissues and organs in health and disease is the starting point from which the group addresses a wide array of structural cardiovascular pathologies.


With support from the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association and corporate partners, the GCRG is currently are conducting multiple large-scale human and animal studies directed towards:
