Cardiovascular Research Center

Research OverviewHome To Some Of The Most Breakthrough, Influential Biomedical Research In The Nation.

UC Health’s Cardiovascular Research Center is the academic home for a highly productive and collaborative faculty with a focus in the area of cardiovascular biology and medicine. Internationally recognized, these faculty are renowned for their “bench to bedside” approach in fundamental discoveries that will lead into useful techniques for the expansion of existing research excellence and the establishment of innovative, improved therapeutic targets in the cardiovascular disease arena.

Center for Cardiovascular Research Goals

  • Strengthen the bridges between basic science , translational and clinical cardiopulmonary research,
  • Support leading-edge research that leads to discovery of novel technologies and therapeutics for treating a society afflicted with these diseases,
  • Expand current research into promising new areas including stem cell biology,
  • Translate and commercialize our discoveries into products (therapeutics) so that clinicians can provide the best care,
    • Recruit prominent and promising faculty that complement and enhance our current research strengths, and
    • Enhance the training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, our next generation of cardiovascular scientists.
