Posted 3/11/13

PROVIDENCE – Dr. Samuel C. Dudley has been appointed chief of the division of cardiology at the Cardiovascular Institute at Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals, hospital officials announced on March 5.

Dudley will also serve as chief of the division of cardiology in the Department of Medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Dudley will oversee all cardiology services on the two campuses including patient care and clinical research. He is also responsible for the research and educational programs at all the Brown teaching hospitals to further strengthen the program’s position as a regional and national leader in cardiac care. His appointment is effective as of March 1.

“Dr. Dudley is a unique combination of physician, researcher and entrepreneur,” said Dr. Timothy J. Babineau, president and chief executive officer of Lifespan. “We are confident that his leadership skills and hands-on approach will serve to strengthen the program and support all cardiac physicians. his commitment to cutting-edge research will solidify our cardiac program as one of the best in the country.”

Dudley’s research efforts into such areas as sudden cardiac death have resulted in the development of an innovative blood test designed to identify those patients most at risk. His entrepreneurial spirit has led him to receive more than 20 patents and to launch a biotech firm focused specifically on commercializing this blood test.

“We look forward to the important contributions that Dr. Dudley will make to education and research in cardiology,” said Dr. Edward J. Wing, MD, dean of medicine and biological sciences at Alpert Medical School.

Dudley comes to Rhode Island from the University of Illinois at Chicago where he served as chief of cardiology and co-director of the Center for Cardiovascular Research. He previously served as chief of cardiology at the Atlanta VA Medical Center and associate professor of medicine and physiology at Emory University in Atlanta.
