The Stem Cell Center – Texas Heart Institute

Welcome

The Stem Cell Center – Texas Heart Institute is dedicated to the study of adult stem cells and their role in treating diseases of the heart and the circulatory system. Through numerous clinical and preclinical studies, we have come to realize the potential of stem cells to help patients suffering from cardiovascular disease. We are actively enrolling patients in studies using stem cells for the treatment of heart failure.

Whether you are a patient looking for information regarding our research, or a doctor hoping to learn more about stem cell therapy, we welcome you to the Stem Cell Center. Please visit our Clinical Trials page for more information about our current trials.

Dr. Emerson Perin – Houston, TX“For me, cardiology is the most exciting specialty in medicine. After being trained in a different specialty, I decided that cardiology and interventional cardiology were an ideal combination of my love of research, ability to work well with my hands and desire to benefit people’s lives. Also, the diseases that affect the heart and vasculature can be challenging, and I enjoy meeting challenges head-on. This is at the very center of my commitment to the people in my care. My goal is to provide the very best care for each individual, which is why it’s so important to me that I remain at the forefront of cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology. Through research, through innovation and by making a personal commitment to each patient, I’m able to offer real, meaningful and often immediate help. It’s rewarding to see tangible results, especially in the faces of the people who trust me to help them with problems that are real and often quite serious.”

    In collaboration with the Engineering Directorate at Johnson Space Center, we developed the required hardware and software enabling the assessment of various PEMF frequencies, waveforms, and pulse durations. In addition, we created a signal monitoring/feedback capability for stable magnetic control and a Helmholtz coil design, and we performed a full simulation before construction. This device and the associated software will help identify the most effective PEMF parameters for space-induced bone loss and muscle atrophy. We performed the field characterization of the magnetic fields in terms of frequency, sine wave/pulsed inputs, frequency response, field amplitude, and harmonics.
