About Us

The Centre for Cardiovascular Investigations (CCVI) at the University of Guelph is a collaborative venture between laboratories in the Ontario Veterinary College, College of Biological Sciences and Human Health & Nutritional Sciences. With broad interests that span the spectrum of cardiovascular medicine and science, our goal is to understand the mechanisms behind heart disease and to develop new therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Our Centre uses leading-edge approaches, innovation, and infrastructure to investigate cardiovascular disease, and train the next generation of Scientists. Interactions between investigators in basic science and translational medicine provides a unique environment and opportunities to investigate cardiovascular disease in experimental and naturally occurring models. Our integrative capabilities for cardiovacular investigations span from molecular to physiologic and pharmacologic platforms. Our goal is to attract and train the brightest individuals, to develop new understandings of cardiovascular disease, and generate new therapeutic strategies to benefit the health of Canadians.
