UPMC Profile



Dr. Mulukutla divides his time with clinical and research pursuits. His research involves the study of mechanisms of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Under the Heart SCORE study (PI–Dr. Reis), Dr. Mulukutla studies the role of platelet-endothelial interactions in CVD. He is currently working on a number of protocols involving newer cardiovascular imaging modalities, including CT and MRI. Dr. Mulukutla also collaborates with UPMC’s Lupus Center of Excellence in CVD prevention in this population. He works with Dr. McNamara in the study of genetics of atherosclerosis and outcomes after PCI, and he collaborates with the Department of Epidemiology in the NHLBI Dynamic Registry. He is also working to develop the cath lab database. Dr. Mulukutla’s clinical interests are in the areas of interventional cardiology and sees patients clinically at the Comprehensive Heart Center and the Lupus Center of Excellence at Magee Women’s Hospital.
