Research at the University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center

The University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center (CVC) is at the forefront of cardiovascular research thanks to the engagement of our faculty, a culture of collaboration and innovation, and support for both clinical research and basic science. This long-standing focus on research has been part of our history since the University of Michigan established its medical school in 1848. (Visit our digital timeline to view the contributions of U-M cardiovascular researchers over the past 100-plus years.)

The Frankel Cardiovascular Center’s commitment to research is an important differentiator that allows researchers to contribute to the global body of cardiovascular research and ensures patients have access to the latest cardiovascular clinical trials and therapies. 

Clinical Trials: Advancing the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease

Clinical research isn't possible without the help of volunteers, both healthy and affected by specific illnesses and conditions. Hundreds of people take part in cardiovascular clinical trials each year, and our researchers are always seeking more volunteers.
