About the UQ Centre for Cardiac and Vascular Biology

The heart and vasculature are the first organs to function in the developing embryo. Without them, life cannot progress and our cardiovascular system is crucial for our health throughout life.

Our multidisciplinary and collaborative research centre aims to understand the genetic and cellular regulation of heart and vascular formation during embryonic development, regeneration and in disease.

Our UQ researchers generate fundamental knowledge that is pivotal to understanding how mistakes arise in congenital and acquired cardiovascular disease and how we can promote tissue regeneration and repair in disease.

Our labs are filled with talented and passionate scientists wanting to create change for the one in six Australians affected by cardiovascular disease.

Our expert teams are based at UQ's Institute for Molecular Bioscience, Australian Institute for Bioengineering & Nanotechnology, and School of Biomedical Sciences and School of Pharmacy within the Faculty of Medicine.
