My name is Irina Iuliana Costache, I am a Senior Registrar in Internal Medicine and Senior Registrar in Cardiology and I am working for 27 years  in the largest emergency hospital in Iasi, Romania.

At the same time I am  Associate Professor in the Department of Internal medicine and Cardiology at University of Medicine and Pharmacy of lasi, Romania.

Working in an emergency hospital I had the opportunity to acquire a vast experience with the main cardiovascular emergencies. Also,  on the head of research I have participated in a whole series of clinical trials and research projects within our University. The point of greatest interest was ischemic heart disease and 6 years ago I was the director of  a research grant with the object of study clopidogrel resistance.
