Welcome

Welcome to the Cardiovascular Research School Erasmus University Rotterdam (COEUR)

Our mission is to promote outstanding basic, translational and clinical cardiovascular research, and to train future national and international leaders in the cardiovascular field. The strength of COEUR is founded in the multidisciplinarity of its teams of medical specialists, scientific investigators and (PhD) students.

The mission of COEUR is two-fold

  • To promote outstanding basic, translational and clinical cardiovascular research, with the ultimate aim of improving the diagnosis, prognosis and quality of life of patients afflicted by or at risk for cardiovascular disease
  • To train future national and international leaders in the cardiovascular field through systematic scientific education and training programs

To achieve its mission, COEUR conducts innovative research and provides high quality training in the cardiovascular field. The research programs include a wide spectrum of disciplines, including cardiovascular biology and pharmacology, biomedical engineering, medical informatics and imaging techniques, clinical science, clinical epidemiology and health care research. Training involves an individual training program and includes monthly research seminars and an all-encompassing cardiovascular science core curriculum. COEUR recognizes the need for an integrative, multidisciplinary, translational approach and encourages national and international collaboration.
