The GW Heart & Vascular Institute

Mission

The mission of the GW Heart & Vascular Institute is to promote cardiac and vascular research, education, and community service with the goal of accelerating the pace of scientific discovery, reducing mortality and improving the quality of life of Americans with heart and vascular disease.

To achieve these goals, the GW Heart & Vascular Institute seeks to provide an interdisciplinary structure to integrate basic and clinical investigators, clinicians, medical educators, health policy experts and community leaders.

The Institute’s goal is to be the leading center for heart and vascular research, education and community service – and to do so by leveraging the enormous resources of The George Washington University.
