Cardiovascular Health Research Unit (CHRU)



The Cardiovascular Health Research Unit (CHRU) is a joint program of several departments in the University of Washington School of Medicine and the School of Public Health. We aim to develop and apply knowledge to prevent morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular diseases. Through the collaborative efforts of organizations and researchers based locally, nationally, and internationally, we develop innovative approaches not only to discover new biology through biomarkers and genomics, but also to evaluate the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disorders.
