This multi-disciplinary research centre is focussed on the development of high quality cardiovascular research providing a collaborative environment for colleagues from multiple disciplines (eg epidemiology, nursing, clinical, translational and basic science) to make a direct impact on people’s lives.

LCCS has a number of major international partnerships, fostering close academic collaborations with colleagues from Europe (Holland/Denmark/France/Germany/Serbia), Asia (Korea/China/Japan/Taiwan/Hong Kong/Thailand/India/Sri Lanka), Australia and South America (Brazil).

Whilst contributing to the global agenda, we also recognise the importance of meeting the needs of our local communities.
