Cardiovascular Research Center

Laboratories and Core Facilities

Our teams of multidisciplinary investigators with the Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) are breaking new ground as we strive to transform scientific findings into real and progressive therapies to combat cardiovascular diseases. We are continuously growing our cutting-edge translational research laboratory to position the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai as the leader in cardiovascular genomics.
