“We’re interested in any and all research that moves the ball forward in terms of taking care of our patients, from peripheral arterial disease, thoracic outlet syndrome, dealing with complications, preventing amputations, even artificial intelligence,” he said. “All have a place in helping improve the care for our patients. We are also especially interested in championing and spotlighting research that deals with disparities, diversity, equity and inclusion.”
