UCL and Queen Mary University of London have agreed to establish a joint  Cardiovascular Institute to rise to the global challenge of cardiovascular disease.


The endeavour between the two Institutions will provide system-wide support for UCLPartners' cardiovascular Academic Medical Centre, the hub of which will be the new Barts Heart Centre.  By combining joint strengths in discovery science, experimental medicine and population health sciences and our involvement with the Francis Crick Institute, NICOR, the Farr, and Genomics England, we will drive forward diagnostic and therapeutic innovation and prevention strategies to address the extensive burden of cardiovascular disease in North Central and East London
