Major Areas of Research Interest: 

Dr. Goldman’s clinical research has focused on graft patency (evaluating the openness of arteries) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). He has been the principle investigator and co-investigator on a number of large VA multicenter studies that defined the appropriate use of aspirin for vein graft patency after CABG.  He is currently completing a long-term trial defining radial artery graft patency after CABG.

Dr. Goldman’s work in the laboratory focuses on cardiovascular physiology and pharmacology. To this end, he has been investigating cell-based therapy for heart failure using stem cells seeded on a biodegradable patch as treatment for heart failure. He and Jordan Lancaster, PhD, founded Avery Therapeutics, a biotechnology start-up company that is a spin off from the University of Arizona to commercialize this idea.
