The mission of the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) is to enhance collaborative research that is broadly related to cardiovascular disease and neuroscience.  Our major goals are to promote scientific exchange among clinicians and basic scientists and to provide resources to support new CV research in the Health Science Division (HSD). The Cardiovascular Research Institute includes over 50 faculty from basic science and clinical departments. We invite all Loyola scientists and clinicians with relevant interests to participate in the CVRI’s activities to enhance discovery and improve patient outcomes.


Incoming and current Loyola University Medical Center Cardiology fellows attend a recent CVRI research orientation.  The aim of these sessions is to help clinicians access the wealth of both clinical and basic science research within the Loyola community.
