The research interests of Robert M Mentzer Jr., MD, include myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury, myocardial protection, adverse post-infarction left ventricular remodeling, heart failure and organ preservation for heart transplantation. His studies focus on mitophagy and mitochondrial biogenesis and the role these play in the mitigation of acute and chronic ischemic injury. The objective is to develop more effective cardioprotective strategies for patients at risk of ischemia-reperfusion injury and heart failure using an entirely new approach to cardioprotection based on adaptive autophagy.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
