Institute for Metabolic and Cardiovascular Research


The Institute is consisted of four interrelated research centers. They are: 


1. Center for Clinical Metabolism 

This research center aims to provide better understanding of human biology and deliver better treatments by studying new drugs, devices, diet, metabolism and other factors. Researchers at this center will investigate the mechanisms that govern metabolic health in patients including obesity and diabetes. 


2. Centers for Integrative Metabolism

This center will develop successful approaches to the understanding, prevention and treatment of diabetes and related metabolic diseases in patients. 


3. Center for Atherosclerosis and Aortopathy

This center strives to develop approaches to the understanding, prevention and treatment of vascular diseases. 


4. Center for Heart Failure, Cardiomyopathy, and Cardiac Regeneration

This center will develop means to the understanding, prevention and treatment of heart failure and cardiac diseases
