A Center of Excellence for Peripheral Vascular Disease Research
The Vascular Disease Research Center at Rhode Island Hospital develops clinical trials and basic science research, and has a demonstrated track record in obtaining funding for these initiatives from the federal government through the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The center also coordinates a number of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) studies at Rhode Island Hospital.
We can help investigators seeking to develop ideas in the vascular disease arena into fundable grant applications, either formally with center involvement or informally. We also can serve in this capacity for the medical device or drug industry, helping to plan and execute all aspects of FDA studies.
Our mission is to advance scientific understanding and improve public health by developing and performing pivotal clinical and basic scientific research in peripheral vascular disease.
