Cardiovascular Research Institute

The Cardiovascular Research Institute of Kurume University was originally established by Professor Noboru Kimura of the
Third Department of Internal Medicine in 1959. It was largely funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, New York,
USA. The Cardiovascular Research Institute has been a center for both clinical cardiology and basic cardiovascular science in Kurume University. The Institute has been supported by a series of national grants from MEXT, Japan since 1998, when the Cardiovascular Research Institute was renovated with 20 laboratory rooms and cutting-edge research equipment.

The mission of the Institute is to conduct the clinical and basic research of cardiovascular diseases, the second largest killer in Japan next to malignant neoplasms, for novel diagnostics, therapeutics and eventually better patient healthcare, focusing mainly on atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, Kawasaki disease and aortic diseases. The Department of Internal Medicine Division of Cardio-vascular Medicine, the Deartment of Surgery and the Department of Pediatrics in the Kurume University School of Medicine collaborate together at the Institute, which provides a unique environment and opportunities for multidisciplinary and high-quality research on cardiovascular diseases.
