Cardiovascular disease: AHSC programme
Our AHSC (Academic Health Science Centre) cardiovascular programme is focussed on developing innovative approaches to prevent heart disease and creating new medicines and devices that will benefit patients.
This programme compliments the AHSN focus on improving the cardiac health of our patient population through partnerships that make a real difference in population and place-based care.
