The Nora Eccles Harrison Cardiovascular Research & Training Institute (CVRTI) studies cardiac function with a translational focus. Our research provides a highly integrated approach to the study of cardiac electrophysiology, ion transport, structural and functional remodeling of excitation-contraction coupling in heart failure, proteomics and epigenetics of heart failure, metabolomics of myocardial ischemia and cardiac arrest, and mitochondrial function.

Labs

CVRTI faculty have over nine labs that focus on multiple aspects of cardiac function.

Research Activities

Researchers at CVRTI have published over 800 articles, books, book chapters, and other research results.

Resources & Equipment

We draw on resources of cutting-edge technical capabilities, computing, and a machine electronic shop.
