Molecular and Vascular Medicine
The Division of Molecular Medicine was created in 1989 at the BIDMC to foster hospital-based basic and translational sciences. Recognizing the emergence of vascular biology as a critical area of research and development, the division was renamed Molecular and Vascular Medicine in 1993. The goal of the Division is to create the first-of-its-kind bench-to-bedside program in vascular/endothelial biomedicine. The strategic plan of the Division is focused on three complementary areas:
- basic science research
- translational research, and
- clinical care.
The Division of Molecular and Vascular Medicine complements and interacts closely with the existing inter-departmental hospital wide Center for Vascular Biology Research.
