All are on the rise in the United States and, with the increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes, have been described as an epidemic. Did you know that in 2013 the leading cause of death was cardiovascular disease? This affects us all. People either have heart disease, will get heart disease, or know someone who has heart disease. The demand is high for a greater understanding of how cardiovascular disease develops and for new and better treatments. This is the mission of the Vascular Biology Center. We have brought together an internationally recognized team of experts determined to make breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our field is developing rapidly, our science is critical, not only for the health of our country, but the rest of the world.
