ICVS in the world: Team Science crossing borders

Global Collaborators Map 2019

Huge strides have been made in cardiovascular medicine and research over the past 20 years, but more still needs to be done to further reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

We work as a team to achieve our goals – internally and with our external partners. The key to many successful research endeavours is collaboration whether that be with colleagues within the University, colleagues in the UK, international academic partners, or industry. Over the years, we have built lasting links with research partners all over the world.  

To give a visual of countries the Institute currently collaborates with, the list below shows the number of partners in different countries, counted as grant co-holders or co-authors.
