Emerson Perin, MD, PhD
Director, Clinical Research for Cardiovascular Medicine
Medical Director of the Stem Cell Center
Texas Heart Institute, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital
Houston, Texas

Dr. Perin is the Director of Clinical Research for Cardiovascular Medicine and the Medical Director of the Stem Cell Center at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, as well as the Staff Interventional Cardiologist at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital. He is also Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine both at Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Dr. Perin has provided innovative cardiovascular care for 20 years, focusing on minimally invasive interventional approaches to therapy. For more than 10 years, his major research interest has been the study of adult stem cells for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, chronic heart failure, and peripheral vascular disease. Dr. Perin was the first investigator in the United States to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to inject stem cells directly into the hearts of patients suffering from heart failure.

The Stem Cell Center 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 pre-clinical studies they have come to realize the potential of stem cells to help patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.
