Cardiovascular Institute

About the Cardiovascular Institute

Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) is the nucleus for cardiovascular research at Stanford University. Formed in 2004, the Cardiovascular Institute is home to Stanford's myriad cardiovascular-related adult and pediatric research, clinical, and educational programs, centers and laboratories, as well as over 500 Stanford basic scientists, graduate students, clinician scientists, and other researchers in heart and vessel disease and prevention.

In an era of unprecedented opportunities for translating knowledge to improve human health, the CVI encompasses some of the most promising biomedical research taking place today and is building a comprehensive program that leads to more advanced treatments for people with heart disease.

Improvements in the cardiovascular health of patients and the general population arise from new research collaborations that translate scientific discoveries into practical clinical and public health applications. The Cardiovascular Institute provides organizational structure to concentrate and coordinate the activities of scientists, engineers, educators, and physicians committed to improving the cardiovascular health of patients and educating and training the next generation of leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

Singularly, the Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital are located entirely on the Stanford University Silicon Valley campus, a co-location with Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, and Business that enables a richly diverse mix of students, faculty, and scientists to engage with each other in the Cardiovascular Institute's innovative interdisciplinary research and training programs.
