Dedicated to the reduction of death and disability
from the number one killer of Americans: Cardiovascular Disease.
At the Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science & Biomedical Devices, cardiovascular scientists, engineers, and clinicians from Texas A&M University and The University of Texas Medical Branch in Houston have joined forces to fight cardiovascular disease in both human and veterinary patients.
Administratively housed in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS), 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.
