A cardiovascular epidemiologist, Dr Hulley led the landmark Heart and Estrogen/progestin Replacement Study (HERS), the first major trial to reveal an increase in coronary and thromboembolic events in women randomized to hormone treatment after menopause. This study was first published in JAMA in 1998 and was for several years the most cited paper in medicine. It was recently republished as a JAMA Classic.

Dr. Hulley also chaired the Steering Committee for the CARDIA cohort study of risk development in 5,115 young black and white women and men for a period of 23 years. He has held leadership roles in numerous other multicenter studies including the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT) and the Medicine or surgery (Ms) trial of hysterectomy vs. medical management for abnormal uterine bleeding. He chaired the Epidemiology Subcommittee of two National Cholesterol Education Program policy documents (ATP I and II). His current research includes VEST/PREDICTS, a 60-center trial and follow-up study of wearable and implanted cardiac defibrillators.
