About the Cardiovascular Research Center
Our Center brings together over 130 researchers, physicians and educators to focus on ways to prevent and treat cardiac problems. These investigators represent more than 30 specialties--from genetics to pharmacology and preventive cardiology to cardiovascular surgery. They attack cardiovascular problems through basic research, clinical investigation, diagnosis, treatment and public education.

Working together, Center members combine their unique perspectives, generate new ideas and reduce the time it takes to "translate" new discoveries from laboratories to the aid of patients.
