Cambridge Cardiovascular


The Initiative was first approved by the University of Cambridge Research Policy Committee in 2013 for three years, and was renewed in 2016 for another three. We became an Interdisciplinary Research Centre in 2019.

Cambridge Cardiovascular SRI's original aims (2013) are listed below:

  1. Pursue the highest quality basic cardiovascular research and translate the research into improved therapies, disease management, and preventive strategies at the population level. 
  2. Raise awareness of cardiovascular research done in Cambridge both nationally and internationally, demonstrating the strength and diversity of the existing research and attracting new investigators and research partnerships.
  3. Provide a platform for cross-disciplinary research collaborations, major funding bids, research training and educational activities.
  4. Develop strategic partnerships between disciplines and between academia and industry.
  5. Identify new ways of influencing cardiovascular health through collaborations between clinicians, public health, and social sciences.
  6. Develop a cross-School research strategy to maximise funding opportunities and to enhance translation. 
  7. Create a portal for engagement with clinical trials units and with clinicians for the translation of research findings into new therapeutics, devices and approaches.
  8. Help Cambridge research influence funders and government to determine future research and investment strategy and government policy on cardiovascular health
