Basic, Translational and Clinical Cardiovascular Medicine (CVD)


Our greatest strength is from bench to bedside approach to research. We have the knowledge and facilities for developing new, innovative therapeutic solutions that can be first tested in small and large animal models before moving to clinical trials. Having the National Virus Vector Laboratory, in vitro and in vivo research facilities and Kuopio University Hospital within the same campus area, gives us an excellent platform for translational research.
