CPVB COBRE Vision

Effective therapies for blood vessel diseases, based on mechanistic understanding.

CPVB COBRE Mission

This vision will be accomplished through research of a group of outstanding investigators who are using cutting edge tools to understand diseases of the blood vessels.

Strategy

Strengthening and broadening of the CardioPulmonary Vascular Biology (CPVB) COBRE will provide the basis for new scientific collaborations, better understanding of blood vessel diseases, and improved treatments.
