Honorable Maestro

University of Louisville cardiologist and researcher, Roberto Bolli, M.D., is director of U of L’s Institute of Molecular Cardiology and serves as scientific director of the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute at the university. He is also a professor and chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the School of Medicine. In the past year, he received one of the largest grants ever for medical research at the University of Louisville, to study a promising new type of adult cardiac stem cell that has the potential to treat heart failure. He also led the Stem Cell Summit at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association in Anaheim, California.

Dr. Bolli’s research focus has been on how to repair the heart and cure heart failure using a patient’s own stem cells. It is an approach that could revolutionize the treatment of heart disease.
