Message from the Director
Welcome to the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CRI). The CRI is comprised of a multidisciplinary group of clinicians and researchers who are engaged and dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life for people with cardiovascular disease through research and education.
The CRI facilitates interactions and collaborations between investigators studying the cardiovascular complications of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart failure, stress, sleep apnea, and other conditions prevalent in Texas and the United States.
Resources provided by the Institution have allowed us to expand the scope of cardiovascular research at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, creating new opportunities to compete for external funding and provide training for students from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and other programs at UNTHSC.
