Dr. Mancini remains a tenured Professor of Medicine at the University of British Columbia and directs an imaging-based research program (Cardiovascular Imaging Research Core Laboratory, CIRCL) that includes facilities for quantitative coronary angiography, ultrasound analyses (coronaries, carotids and brachial artery for atherosclerosis and endothelial function assessments) and cardiac computed tomography. This program has been actively funded for over 30 years, originating at the University of Michigan and transferred to UBC in 1992. Dr. Mancini’s interest focuses on the integration of multi-modality cardiac imaging in multicenter clinical trials for assessment of structural and functional aspects of coronary atherosclerosis and for primary and secondary cardiovascular risk reduction. He has published over three hundred journal articles, abstracts, books and book chapters.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, prior Governor of the American College of Cardiology (British Columbia), a member of the Circulation Council of the American Heart Association, Past President of the Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation, past Editorial Board Member of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and the American Journal of Cardiology and a member of numerous professional associations in the United States and Canada. He serves as a reviewer for many journals and is currently a member of the editorial boards of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, and the International Journal of Cardiac Imaging. He is also an Associate Editor of Atherosclerosis.
Dr. Mancini remains in active practice in the Vancouver Hospital Cardiology Outpatient Clinic, directs the CardioRisk Clinic there, which provides comprehensive primary and secondary prevention therapy, and also works in the St. Paul's Hospital Healthy Heart Prevention Program/Lipid Clinic. A major clinical focus is to foster innovation in novel CV risk detection and therapy, to support FH Canada for the identification and treatment of patients with Familial Hypercholesterolemia and to support the SAVE BC program to identify patients and families with very early atherosclerotic heart disease in order to understand the causes and identify novel risk factors.
