Dr. Udell is a Cardiologist and Clinician-Scientist at Women’s College Hospital and the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre at the University Health Network and an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto. He and his group’s focus is in the conduct of large observational studies and clinical trials testing strategies and treatments for primary and secondary prevention of ischemic heart disease and heart failure. As a co-PI, national lead investigator, or steering committee member, he has recently published the INVESTED randomized controlled trial, which investigated the cardiovascular benefit of a high-dose versus usual-dose influenza vaccine; as well as the SCORED trial, studying sotagliflozin in patients with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Currently he is the co-PI of a CIHR SPOR Innovative Clinical Trial Grant testing a provincial report card strategy on primary care performance measures for cholesterol management and also a co-lead of the international, multicentre EMPACT-MI trial, testing the early use of an SGLT2 inhibitor in high-risk heart attack patients to prevent the onset of heart failure.
