James K. Min, MD, has joined CRF as Director of Non-Invasive Imaging. Dr. Min leads clinical research programs involving non-invasive imaging technologies including nuclear imaging, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), cardiac computed tomography, and positron emission tomography (PET) for the CRF Clinical Trials Center (CTC).
An expert in cardiovascular imaging and a physician-scientist, Dr. Min has led several large-scale multicenter clinical trials and registries. He is an attending physician at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Professor of Radiology and Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Min was also recently appointed director of the Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College. Previously, Dr. Min served as Director of Cardiac Imaging Research and Co-Director of Cardiac Imaging at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Min who will greatly enhance the imaging capabilities and expertise of the CRF Clinical Trials Center,” said Ori Ben-Yehuda, MD, Executive Director of the CRF Clinical Trials Center. “Dr. Min’s unique background and experience, combined with his expert knowledge of clinical trial design and research, will expand our capabilities in the innovative use of novel next-generation imaging technologies to diagnose and treat heart disease.”
“Dr. Min is a world recognized authority on numerous non-invasive imaging modalities, and has unique and practical knowledge of the inter-relationships between non-invasive imaging, coronary angiography and revascularization,” said Gregg W. Stone MD, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center and Co-Director of Medical Research and Education at CRF. “The addition of Dr. Min’s expertise, abilities, and work ethic brilliantly complements the cutting edge clinical trial and core laboratory work for which CRF is known, and will vastly expand our core competencies, allowing us to enter new realms and lead novel investigations.”
“I am delighted to join the CRF Clinical Trials Center, an organization with a distinguished reputation for innovation and countless contributions to cardiovascular medicine and patient care,” said Dr. Min. “Working closely with CRF’s renowned physician leadership, I hope to expand and enhance the CTC’s expertise in non-invasive imaging clinical trial design and development.”
