Dr Piña has a particular research and clinical interest in rehabilitation of heart disease in patients with heart failure. She completed a NHLBI HF ACTION trial and is in the process of examining recovery after exercise which could be translated to an additional parameter that may better predict prognosis of outcomes. In addition, there was a R21 to NHLBI to examine Vitamin D levels as another predictor from the HF ACTION database.
