The Saha Cardiovascular Research Center (SCRC) is responsible for producing our most important basic science research. Through extramurally funded programs, SCRC physician-scientists and researchers work in the laboratory studying fundamental functions of the cardiovascular system, such as atherosclerosis and aneurysm, cardiac imaging, bioactive lipid mediators, platelet function and thrombosis, and stem-cell biology. Their research is often the building blocks for our clinical trial research to better understand and uncover cures for various cardiovascular conditions.
