The aim of the Donald W. Reynolds Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center at Stanford University was to provide better care for patients with heart disease through the application of modern genetic approaches. Projects utilized the techniques of modern molecular biology to identify genes for which abnormalities predisposed to heart disease in a specific way. These genes were then examined for unique mutations that could serve as markers to track disease in larger populations. The project was large in scope and consisted of several sub projects. I was involved in planning, designing and implementing systems for recruitment, scheduling clinic visits, generating reports and result letters, clinical visit data collection, barcode generation, and sample tracking. I was also involved in planning, designing and implementing Reynolds analysis dataset which served as a backbone for all the data analysis.
