His research is at the verge of basic and clinical arena, mainly in the fields of acute coronary syndrome, heart failure and lately to cancer therapy-induced cardiotoxicity. He is an advanced imaging user, and has used magnetic resonance imaging to better understand pathophysiology of myocardial diseases (tissue characterization) and to evaluate the benefits of cardioprotective therapies. He actively participates in primary prevention studies focused on atherosclerosis early identification by imaging to improve risk prediction. PI of several multicenter clinical trials recruiting patients with myocardial infarction and heart failure. He served as the Chairman of the 2017 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) STEMI Clinical Practice Guidelines.
