Cardiovascular Biology

Study of the organ system that uses the heart to pump blood throughout the body. Basic biological and translational research spans the spectrum of biophysical, molecular, cellular, whole animal, and human translational trials to elucidate normal cardiovascular physiology and define underlying pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease.
