The Center for Cardiovascular Research

The Division of Cardiology is involved in a variety of clinical and basic research activities and, along with the Department of Medicine, works in partnership in the activities of the multidepartmental UIC Center for Cardiovascular Research (CCVR). A number of faculty in the Division of Cardiology hold appointments in the CCVR, linking the clinical activities of the Division with the vibrant basic research environment within UIC’s larger medical school campus. This partnership forms a union of the clinical resources of the division and the many strength of well-established CCVR research programs in cardiac metabolism, cardiomyocyte contractility, pulmonary hypertension and right heart function, and cardiac resuscitation, along with the unique technical capabilities and additional core services of the CCVR. 

 

In addition to faculty research within the CCVR, Cardiology faculty are actively engaged in the CCVR run, multi-departmental graduate program (Ph.D. Concentration in Cardiovascular Sciences), that is available to UIC graduate students in partnering basic science departments, providing graduate students lectures, lab rotation experiences, and thesis supervision.

 

Within the CCVR, there exist many multidisciplinary NIH-sponsored research and training grants which support and provide research opportunities for pre- and post-doctoral trainees, including cardiology fellows.
