Cardiovascular diseases and its risk factors include diseases and conditions such as type2 diabetes, hypertension, heart attack, heart failure, and stroke.
The various research performed at CIRTM include population-based research and lab-based science. Our population-based research is aimed to identify determinants and predicting factors of cardiovascular diseases at population level by investigating data from large number of individuals. Our lab-based approaches tries to find novel therapeutic factors at cellular and molecular level using animal and cellular models. For instance, we investigate effect of various therapeutic compounds in immune response in heart muscle after heart attack.
