CardioVascular Center for Research and Innovation (CVCRI)

About the CardioVascular Center for Research and Innovation

The mission of the CardioVascular Center for Research and Innovation (CVCRI) is to develop a highly integrated program that incorporates all aspects of the CVC into a pipeline that fosters cutting-edge patient care, clinical research, and innovation. CVC Investigators are global leaders with dominant expertise in all domains of cardiovascular medicine. The highly collaborative nature of the CVC and its partnerships with the Molecular Cardiology Research Institute (MCRI) and the Surgical and Interventional Research Laboratories (SIRL) creates a unique environment where our clinical excellence is driven by our ability to both ask and answer fundamental questions and translate these findings back into clinical practice (figure). This ‘CV Engine for Innovation’ generates the possibility to change paradigms, to provide creative solutions for complex cardiovascular problems, and to drive the future of cardiovascular medicine (figure). 

We will be highlighting specific research grants, publications, investigators, conferences, clinical trials, our fellows-in-training, and philanthropic gifts.
