UniBE Cluster for Cardiovascular Research

Titleimage: UCCR

As cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally, a greater understanding of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology is of utmost importance. Consequently, several teams of the Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) and the University of Bern (UniBE) are actively involved in research concerning the function of the heart, arteries and veins, as well as the underlying mechanisms, in healthy and diseased states. This research ranges from fundamental biochemical science to pre-clinical and clinical studies, and therefore relies on a multitude of experimental models. 

In order to promote the cardiovascular research teams in Bern as leaders in the understanding of cardiovascular (patho)physiology and in the development of approaches to reduce disease burden, the UniBE Cluster for Cardiovascular Research was established for all DBMR and UniBE members with an interest in cardiovascular research.
