RESEARCH AREAS

Research is a fundamental tool that enables the development of successful new treatments that contribute to the ongoing preservation of health. The three key areas of research include pre-clinical, epidemiology or public health and clinical health. All research occurs within tight ethical frameworks. 

Pre-Clinical Research

Ongoing research to understand the biological basis of cardiovascular health and disease.

Epidemiology & Public Health 

Epidemiology enables an understanding of what is occurring within wider communities and human populations. Clinical health research compliments epidemiological studies to enhance our understanding of populations.

Clinical Health Research

Successful new treatment depends on pre-clinical research to understand what is important for cardiovascular health, and what goes wrong in disease in order to identify potential targets for intervention.
