Research Description

Lynn Punnoose's research interests include outcomes of dual organ transplantation, assessment of cardiac risk factors in kidney transplantation, and management of cardiogenic shock. In addition, she is developing her skills in medical education through (1) improving systems-based practices at the trainee and faculty level and (2) working with the Education Workforce of the Heart Failure/Transplant Council at the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation to develop symposia and educational sessions for faculty. She hopes to develop efforts in community education and awareness of heart failure, as well.
