At the Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science and Biomedical Devices, cardiovascular scientists, engineers, and clinicians from Texas A&M University and the UT Medical School in Houston have joined forces to fight cardiovascular disease in both human and veterinary patients. Administratively housed in the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, the Institute has unique access to naturally-occurring cardiovascular disease in animals. Through the use of novel cardiovascular devices and pharmaceuticals in humans and animals, we can play a pivotal role in improving the quality of life of all species.
