Centre for Cardiovascular Science


Find out more about the Centre for Cardiovascular Science

The Centre for Cardiovascular Science (CVS) was one of the first multidisciplinary research centres in Edinburgh and has been a model for many more. Initiated in 1998 by a £7M Wellcome Trust Cardiovascular Research Initiative Award and consolidated by over £20M in serial BHF strategic awards, the groups constituting the CVS came together on the Little France campus in 2005 to form a "Centre for Cardiovascular Risk & Resolution" in the Queen's Medical Research Institute (QMRI). Today CVS has core facilities and training programmes across three buildings at Little France - the QMRI, the Chancellor's Building, and the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
