Relevance

Cardiovascular and lung vascular diseases are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the US. A multidisciplinary group of MD, PhD, and MD/PhD investigators will develop a research center focusing on understanding the biology of vascular injury. Improved understanding of mechanisms of blood vessel injury promotes development of new and innovative treatments. This Vascular Biology COBRE will be first of its kind in Rhode Island, a state with a high burden of both heart and lung disease.
