Completed Research Support: (PI: Evangelista, L.) 08/17/2009-12/31/2015 $2,500,000 NIH-NHLBI (ARRA) (1R01HL093466-01) Role Principal Investigator (25%) Examining the Effects of a High Protein Diet on Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure The overall goal of this clinical, randomized trial is to test whether a standardized protein (15% of total calories from protein) vs. a high protein (30% of total calories from protein) diet promotes weight loss in obese patients with HF and consequently support cardiac, metabolic, and quality of life improvements in this population.
Completed Research Support: (PI: Michael Ong) Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality 09/01/2010 – 08/30/2013 $9,900.000 Role: Co-Investigator (15%) Variations in Care: Comparing Heart Failure Care Transition Intervention Effects The goal of this project is to identify and collect data from local Health Management departments and provide reports to the data analysis team at UCLA.
