Dr. Chahine has done extensive research on various aspects of cardiovascular disease and has earned   millions of dollars in grants and contracts from government and industry in support of his research.   He has authored or co-authored more than 200 publications in leading national and international medical journals and books.  He had major contributions on the topics of coronary artery spasm, unstable angina, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and exercise testing. He also published the first comprehensive book on Coronary Artery Spasm.  He has lectured and made presentations in all six continents. Dr. Chahine has served on the editorial board of several important cardiovascular journals as well as editorial consultant and reviewer for most of the leading journals that specialize in internal medicine and/or cardiovascular disease.  In 1996, Dr. Chahine took leave from his position at the University of Miami and was appointed as Professor and Dean of the Lebanese University Medical School in Beirut, Lebanon, and held that job for several years. He was also offered a Visiting Professorship at AUB at that time.

In order to secure access to U.S. politicians and promote better understanding and support for Lebanon, Dr. Chahine has gotten successfully involved with fund raising in  national and local political campaigns.  He was also appointed to US Senate Advisory Committees on Health and on Foreign Relations by Senator Connie Mack in the early 90s.

Clark proclaimed March 27 as Dr. Robert A. Chahine Day in Metropolitan Dade County.

Despite a busy medical career, Dr. Chahine has remained very close to the problems of Lebanon, his birth country, and has worked in various capacities to bring attention and seek solutions for those problems.  His efforts have always been in support of a united, free, democratic and sovereign Lebanon.  His hope is to see his old country become an effective catalyst towards a real and just peace in the region. He is the current president and one of the founders of the American Lebanese foundation
