The Cardiovascular Biology Program is focused on understanding the
molecular basis of the normal and abnormal development and functioning
of the cardiovascular system. Give the large disease burden of cardiovascular
disease in our population, we are particularly interested in discovering
and studying those factors that will lead to the improved diagnosis,
prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease and its consequences,
such as arrhythmia and heart failure.
The environment for cardiovascular investigation at NYU School of
Medicine is outstanding. In addition to the investigators already
in the Program, there are a number of clinical and basic science
programs at the School of Medicine, at the main New York University
campus at Washington Square, and at other nearby medical schools
with collaborative interests that add to the research environment
in the area of Cardiovascular Biology.
Recruitment for the expansion of the Program is led by Dr.
Glenn Fishman, the overall director of the Cardiovascular Biology
Program and leader of the molecular cardiology component, and Dr.
Edward A. Fisher, the director of the vascular biology component.
