Research

Mayo Clinic doctors actively research conditions of the heart, arteries and veins (cardiovascular diseases) in laboratory and clinical research programs, such as genetic risk factors for different types of heart disease. Researchers conduct clinical trials and continually study new diagnosis and treatment options for people with cardiovascular disease, such as the use of molecular imaging methods for early detection of arterial atherosclerosis or the role of gene therapy in treating heart disease.
