Dr. Sandhu is the Vice Chair (International), Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, and was previously Chair, Division of Interventional Cardiology and the Director of the Mayo Clinic Cardiac Cath Lab. Leadership roles have included Medical Director (Europe) where he led the development of Mayo Clinic Healthcare at London. He is also a Professor of Medicine and was previously the Director of the Cardiovascular Innovation Laboratory for translational research. Clinical expertise includes complex coronary artery revascularization, treatment of valvular and structural heart disease, and interventional management of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. Research interests include developing novel therapies for cardiovascular diseases based upon nanotechnology, cell therapy and interventional devices, and this has led to numerous patents covering molecular, cellular and device base technologies. He is also the Principal Investigator or co-investigator on national and international research grants and clinical studies.
