心血管科学

简介/意义

心血管科学Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. 德州 A&M University has a long-standing history of excellence in cardiovascular science in several collaborating colleges, including a unique ability to perform translational research on client owned animals with naturally occurring heart disease (e.g., Doberman pinschers with dilated cardiomyopathy) referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. This relationship is schematically represented in Figure 1 to identify the participants in the cardiovascular science program and the central role of the Michael E. DeBakey Institute that was created in 1999 to formalize programmatic relationship between units. The Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Engineering have shared faculty and teaching responsibilities for more than 30 years, while the Colleges of Education and Medicine have become an integral part of the cardiovascular science program during the past 20 years. Basic science studies have progressed to the point where clinical implementation requires a strong relationship with both the human and veterinary clinical units. The veterinary clinical cardiovascular program is considered to be one of the top 2 programs in the US, and its faculty have developed preeminent programs for training veterinary cardiology residents, performing veterinary clinical trials to determine safety and efficacy of new cardiac therapeutics, and for performing interventional cardiac studies (e.g., coronary stents, pacemakers). The importance of using animals with naturally occurring disease is only recently begun to be recognized as a very powerful tool in the development and testing of new cardiovascular agents and TAMU is well positioned to become a world leader in this area.

心血管科学基础科学心血管科学计划一直在吸引校外资金,以支持其使命(约6000万$ 8年以上)非常成功。该方案是来自个体investigator-基于程序转变为一个在计划建议(计划项目,中心授予和培训补助金)提供了新的核心设施和额外的研究生总体资金的过程。另外教师需要同时扩展广度和教师的深度为计划资金数额完全限定。心血管科学计划具有预示着相关的一个极好的“投资回报”的良好记录

通过添加新的教师职位。该返回,加上从心血管疾病死亡和残疾的减少,提供了这个请求的基础。
