University of Nebraska Medical Center

Center for Heart & Vascular Research

The Center for Heart & Vascular Research brings together multidisciplinary scientists from across departments, colleges, and universities within Nebraska to synergistically facilitate collaborative translational and clinical research that develops the team into an innovative and leading heart and vascular research center and improves the cardiovascular health of our communities.

The Center is dedicated to performing cardiac and vascular research that involves:

  • Developing multidimensional approaches to examine the mechanisms whereby the heart and vasculature respond to injury or stress;
  • Applying the knowledge gained to develop diagnostic tools, test therapeutic strategies, and conduct health services research that prevents, slows, or reverses heart and vascular disease progression;
  • Disseminating our results to scientific, medical, and general communities; and
  • Educating the next generation of scientists.
