The Circulatory Health research community houses a broad range of scientific activities ranging from clinical (epidemiological) studies, translational studies and basic science. The Medical Physiology, Experimental Cardiology and the research group of the Clinical Diagnostics Center have decided to merge their infrastructure, and together with the cardiovascular researchers in Vascular Surgery, Clinical Cardiology and Clinical Genetics they are now presenting themselves as the Circulatory Health Research Center (CHRC).

Six research themes (see below) are all represented in a Steering Board that jointly makes decisions regarding infrastructure, talent management, education, communication and administrative issues. The representing members of the Steering Board can be found at each theme.

The Circulatory Health Research Center aims for an environment where

  • next to individual achievements specifically team efforts are recognized and rewarded
  • quality prevails over Quantity
  • Open Science is promoted
  • researchers act from bench to bedside and actively search for collaborations with clinical specialists.
