Bristol NIHR Biomedical Research Unit for Cardiovascular Disease



Our mission is to translate basic scientific research into novel clinical practice thereby improving patient outcome and care. It brings together internationally respected experts from many disciplines of cardiovascular science and disease. Indeed, the Bristol Heart Institute is now an internationally recognised centre of excellence for performing interdisciplinary cardiovascular research that takes basic science discoveries into the clinic. As well as improving collaboration between scientists and clinicians within the Bristol Heart Institute, and improving medical treatment of cardiovascular diseases, we aim to communicate our research findings to the public and train the next generation of cardiovascular scientists and clinicians.
