The Center was founded in June 2007 with a naming endowment gift from Edwards Lifesciences Corporation, and officially opened its doors in June 2009.
The mission of the Center is simple: to create and foster an environment for innovative basic and translational cardiovascular research and training. The Center is focused on a strategic partnership between the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Division of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine. We will pursue our mission through additional strategic collaborative partnerships on campus such as the Beckman Laser Institute, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, as well as in the thriving local biomedical device community of Orange County.
Features of the Center include shared core resources, training fellowships, a Leadership Council, a focus on translational research, and special events to stimulate research and training activities in the cardiovascular field.
We invite you to browse our Web site for more information on these features and upcoming events.
