Research and Trials
OUR RESEARCH TEAMS
Loyola researchers at the Center for Heart & Vascular Medicine are conducting studies on the causes and consequences of high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and congestive heart failure. Our cell and molecular biologists study normal and diseased tissues of the heart and vascular system to gain new knowledge about the function of the heart and blood vessels. Our scientists are making use of many of the advances in molecular genetics and gene delivery to evaluate new treatments to restore health and prevent injury to the heart and vascular system.
