The Center for Cardiovascular Research is a world-class center of excellence at the University of Illinois at Chicago. It brings together more than fifteen laboratories and facilities focused on defining cures for cardiovascular diseases.

The CCVR supports interdisciplinary research in basic, translational and clinical cardiovascular sciences on the Medical Campus at the University of Illinois at Chicago, in the heart of one of the largest metropolitan cities in the United States. This provides an excellent environment for interactive research, better training opportunities for doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students, residents and fellows with the express goal of recruiting and training the talented leaders in cardiovascular science for the future.

Under the Direction of Dr. E. Douglas Lewandowski, the Center brings together complementary programs of research excellence, interdepartmental faculty expertise, and core facilities to create a multidisciplinary, integrative approach in elucidating and combating mechanisms of heart disease for translation to clinical trials.
