Nationally, cardiovascular disease is the key contributor to poor health. Manchester and Blackpool have the two highest rates of premature death from cardiovascular disease in England.
Key cardiovascular disease outcomes are over-represented in the ethnically diverse populations of North West England.
Our Integrative Cardiovascular Medicine Theme integrates common cardiovascular disease research approaches and methods in the heart, vascular system, brain and kidney, across the life course.
Our Integrative Cardiovascular Medicine Theme contains four programmes:
- High cardiovascular risk conditions
- Acute coronary syndromes
- Congenital heart disease and inherited cardiac conditions
Patients are involved in all stages of the research process. Local patient panels have confirmed the need for this research and highlighted the strong desire to participate in research embedded in our region.
