Research in the cardiovascular area addresses basic questions relevant to the establishment, remodeling, and pathology of the heart and circulatory system. Diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia impact cardiovascular health and vice versa. Molecular signaling pathways, factors affecting angiogenesis, and the microenvironment are areas of research. Research on fluid dynamics and biomembranes is being used to understand the cardiovascular system. The repair response of the cardiovascular system after injury and the normal regeneration of the vasculature are all areas of study.
