Centers of Excellence
For Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences, problems in patient care are the motivation to perform novel translational research that give rise to a cycle of research from ‘bedside to bench and back’. To span the wide field of cardiovascular diseases, the research is divided into five Centers of Excellence each encompassing clinical and basic research. Our strategy enables us to move from the patient to experimental designs in the laboratory, and to subsequently test novel treatment strategies in selected patient groups.
Education, research and clinical activities within the four Centers of Excellence are supported by five programs. Expertise on vascular endothelium is organized within the Research Cluster Microvascular Disease.
