The ICMR is located in purpose-built and state of the art research laboratories which bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines. Within this research environment researchers have access to cutting-edge facilities that support the spectrum of cardiovascular and metabolic research - ranging from cell and molecular biology approaches, cell and organ culture, through to models of disease and human studies. These include access to in vitro and in vivo imaging technologies, advanced microscopy, and tissue culture suites located within the Centre for Cardiovascular Imaging.
Human studies within the ICMR are supported by the
Hugh Sinclair Human Nutrition Group, a clinical unit that enables the physiological impact of dietary change, and the effect of this on cardiovascular and metabolic disease risk to be studied.
Our cardiovascular and metabolic research is also supported by platform technologies located close by, which include proteomics, biological mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance analysis, electron microscopy, functional magnetic resonance imaging with cardiovascular capabilities within the
Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics, nuclear magnetic resonance, and thermal and X-ray analysis.
