Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Dr. Jennifer Tremmel is an Interventional Cardiologist in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University Medical Center. She is the Endowed Medical Director of Women’s Heart Health at Stanford and conducts research on sex differences in cardiovascular disease. Much of her work has focused on patients with angina in the absence of obstructive CAD. This includes studying endothelial dysfunction, microvascular dysfunction, and myocardial bridging in patients with stable angina, and myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) and spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) in patients with acute angina. She also was an early adopter of the transradial approach and is a national expert on the topic. More recently, she started the CTO program at Stanford and has contributed to the field by demonstrating that the radial approach and same-day discharge are readily achievable in complex PCI.
