Cardiovascular Research Training Program

Our Cardiovascular Training Program is widely regarded as one of the best in the country. We have an outstanding record of training in biomedical research and our people have contributed to our understanding of both the basis for and the cure of disease. Our faculty members and their trainees are using state-of-the-art experimental approaches to address some of the most important problems in medical science.

Our areas of emphasis include studies of basic cardiovascular function (focus on smooth muscle, endothelium and leukocytes), as well as cardiovascular diseases (focus on atherosclerosis, hypertension, and stroke). Training can be obtained in many departments and programs (see Mentors above).

A major and continuing focus of our studies is to develop novel drugs, devices, diagnostic methods, and therapeutic approaches to advance treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

We invite you to join us!
