Our research

Translational heart image


Cardiovascular disease remains the single most frequent cause of death in the world, while cardiovascular health has continual impact on our everyday life.

Our multidisciplinary research brings together researchers in platelet, leukocyte, endothelial and myocardial cell biology, with those seeking to understand the pathways accelerating arterial and heart diseases, and the factors influencing cardiovascular health.  Studies span from basic research on surface receptors, signalling pathways and gene regulation, to functional studies of thrombo-inflammatory, bleeding and angiogenic processes, to analysis of cardiovascular performance and disease in patients and in animal models.  Major developments, expansion and improvement of our research facilities help us to translate the very latest scientific research findings in cardiovascular sciences to clinical benefit.
