ENCORE, now a nationally recognized research group, proudly announces the launching of the ENCORE Lipid Center of Excellence.  ENCORE stands for ENcouraging COmmunity Research and Education.  Our new Lipid Center extends our previous successes in this important area of public health.  Lipid problems account for a huge number of heart attacks, strokes and other vascular disease problems each year.

ENCORE CEO and Founder, Dr. Michael Koren, a cardiologist and renown researcher in the area of lipids, has had a long standing interest the treatment of challenging lipid disorders.  He will be leading the Center along with Lori Alexander, a Clinical Lipid Specialist and researcher who is very active with the National Lipid Association.  They both have been a part of ENCORE Research since its formation, and will be putting together resources to bring new lipid treatment studies to the Center.  Previous successes have involved major contributions in widely prescribed cholesterol drugs such as Lipitor and Crestor.

There are many exciting new medications currently being developed to treat conditions such as elevated lipoprotein (a), an important risk factor for heart disease, which will be conducted at the Lipid Center of Excellence.  These studies can offer an opportunity for the community to access cutting-edge treatments.  Join your fellow community members who have already derived educational and health awareness benefits from their participation in research studies.  Donna Toy, a wonderful, longstanding patient who has suffered many family losses from severe cholesterol problems may have said it best: “I have such peace of mind knowing that we can be helped in controlling our heart disease and learn more about our conditions with hands-on help.”
