In honor of the CSRA Heart Walk for the American Heart Association, the Libraries would like to recognize the incredible work that GRU medical researchers have completed and published in the study of cardiac and cardiovascular systems. GRU faculty have authored articles that have been published in the top five cardiac and cardiovascular systems journals with the highest impact factors listed in Thomson Reuters’s Journal Citation Reports. Here is a list of the ten most recent articles with GRU authors within those publications:
