WMU Institute of Cardiac Regeneration

时间:2015-09-11  

The Cardiac Regeneration Research Institute (CRRI) is a not-for-profit research facility, based in Medical School, Wenzhou Medical University, China.

 

In China, more than 3,500,000 people die from cardiovascular diseases every year. It remains the most common cause of hospital admissions for people aged over sixty. While CRRI research covers all forms of heart disease, our focus is on those that affect the heart’s muscle tissue and its repair. These are the diseases that directly affect the heart’s ability to pump enough blood for the body’s needs, in their severest form, can lead to sudden death.

 

The CRRI teams of over 23 professional staff work across four main Research Divisions – Cardiac regeneration and repair, Heart development and aging, Biomaterials and tissue engineering,Immunology and tissue repair. The Institute holds itself to the high standards of excellence in research, research training and efforts to translate each new discovery into practical medical applications.

 

The Institute was funded by grants from the Wenzhou Medical University and the grants from the Governments of Wenzhou Science Foundation, Zhejiang Provincial Natural Science Foundation and National Natural Science Foundation of China.
